Lagos agencies discover containers with rotten edibles
Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) and the Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA) following a tip-off have discovered containers with rotten edibles in the Apapa area of the state.
A joint action team, comprising the Director-General (DG)/Chief Executive Officer (CEO), LASEMA, Olufemi Oke-Osanyitolu and General Manager of LASEPA, Dr. Dolapo Fasawe, while conducting an on-the-site inspection of the containers following reports of air pollution and release of toxic gas into the environment, discovered edibles, including fish, which had become rotten due to faulty refrigerators.
Oke-Osanyitolu said: “A total number of 25 containers were located. Five containers laden with edibles have faulty refrigerators. The edibles have therefore defrosted and have become rotten causing severe health hazards to the environment.
“A total number of 13 houses are located on the street where the containers are located, leaving a huge impact on four houses at Trinity Close Apapa.”
