Worried by the unabated blaring of external loud speakers in churches and mosques across the state, the Lagos state government says it will soon begin prosecution of churches and mosques that violate the state’s environmental laws.
The government views this incessant blaring of external loud speakers by these religious bodies as nuisance to the society and vows to stop it. At a meeting with religious bodies in the state, the General Manager, Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA), Mr. Rasheed Shabi, frowned at the noise pollution going on in churches, mosques and among record vendors. He said government would no longer tolerate this, adding that it would soon swing into action to sanction such erring churches and mosques. According to Shabi, the situation of religious worship centres within residential areas contravenes the state’s physical planning laws and regulations.
