LASEPA conducted a comprehensive enforcement operation targeting noise pollution and other environmental violations in the Yaba, Ebute-Metta, and Makoko areas of Lagos.

Dr. Babatunde Ajayi, the General Manager of LASEPA, emphasized the critical importance of businesses and religious centers, maintaining environmental standards. He reaffirmed the agency’s unwavering commitment to fostering a balanced and sustainable environment for Lagos residents.

He reiterated LASEPA’s dedication to rigorously enforcing environmental laws, with the aim of ensuring compliance and effectively addressing environmental infractions throughout Lagos State for a health citizenry.
