Environment: LASEPA seals 28 hotels
The Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA) says it has sealed more than 28 hotels due to non-compliance with the environmental laws of the state.
Mr Adebola Shabi, the General Manager of LASEPA, said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Monday.
“We just don’t go about sealing indiscriminately, we give warning and failure to comply, ends with a sealing of such property.
“We have standard laws on pollution — noise and air emissions are part of such pollution.”
He said the defaulters would be compelled to sign an undertaking or put in place an action plan to forestall a recurrence, before the facilities would be unsealed.
