LAGOS State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA), has studown Mopson Pharmaceuticals Industry, on Osolo Way and 27 religious houses, among others, over different environmental offences.?

Officials of the agency had alleged that the company was in the habit of discharging untreated waste water into the environment.

An official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said it was mandatory that the waste water gets treated before discharge into the environment, especially in the interest of public health, describing the waste water as toxic and could kill all living organisms in the lagoon.

Also, the agency closed down Dura Products Industries Nigeria Limited on Sanni Olabode Street, Abule Egba, owned by a retired Group Captain for the same reason.

On Ayilara Street, Surulere, two churches, including The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), God Royal Sanctuary, Lagos Province 3, Zone 15, Area 48 and another on its opposite, Tower of Praise Ministries International Praise Centre, were shut over noise pollution.

Others include, Jesus Our Lord Divine Catholic Prayer Ministry, on 11 Anuoluwapo Street, Ilasamaja, where prayer session was ongoing at about 11.00 a.m.
In Ogba, Thomas Salako Street, a club/hotel, popularly known as Shakara Bar, was closed over noise pollution and illegal siting.

General Manager of LASEPA, Adebola Shabi, vowed the club would never be opened again, saying that all his directives to control noise pollution in the last two years had never been heeded.

He disclosed that the closure of 27 religious houses brought the number to 55 that had been sanctioned in the last three weeks.
