The Lagos State Government through one of its agencies - the Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA), over the weekend shut down some churches in Lagos over what the government termed - noise polution.
The churches affected include - Lord's Chosen in Surulere, Bible Church in Festac, The Chapter of Christ Church in Oregun Ikeja, Seek and Save Ministry, Abule Egba, Assemblies of God church, Ikeja, The Golden Gate Church, Ifako Ijaiye.
A rep of the agency say the churches were shut down after the churches disregarded pre-sanction notices given to them to abate the noise pollution emanating from their worship centres.
The government say they are determined to reduce noise polution in Lagos State, so more churches will be shut down.
Dear LASEPA, I live in Surulere, and there are at least three churches around my area that needs to be closed...the noise is unbelievable!
