Ogun seals 12 companies for pollution
Ogun State Government has sealed 12 companies, mostly metal smelting companies in Ogijo, Sagamu Local Government, for pollution and other environmental infractions.
The Commissioner for Environment, Abiodun Abudu-Balogun, who ordered the sealing of the companies, said they were shut after several warnings and would remain closed, until they showed government their roadmap to ending pollution.
Abudu-Balogun said no government would fold its arms and watch companies pollute the environment, considering its effects on the populace. He reiterated this administration’s resolve to clampdown on erring companies, no matter their size and employment opportunities.
