Lagos Government shuts Hon. Shina Peller’s Nightclub over noise pollution

The Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA) has shut down a popular nightclub, Quilox, owned by a Federal Lawmaker, Shina Peller, over noise pollution and organising an event without a sound control permit.

Federal Lawmaker is representatives the Iseyin/Itesiwaju/Kajola/Iwajowa federal constituency of Oyo State.

According to a statement made available to newsmen, on Sunday, the enforcement exercise, which was jointly carried out by LASEPA and the Lagos State Environmental and Special Offences Unit (task force), took place around 4 pm at Ozumba Mbadiwe Street, Victoria Island.

Similarly, the club was sealed off by LASEPA on December 23, 2019 over noise pollution and traffic congestion.

The General Manager of LASEPA, Ms. Dolapo Fasawe, on Sunday said that the club was again shut down over non-compliance with the law on obtaining a sound control permit.

She said the agency received several distress calls with video evidence from concerned neighbours on the alleged environmental nuisance constituted by the club.

“To avert situations like this, we recently held a stakeholders’ parley with the owners and chief executive officers of night clubs in the state to address the issue of noise pollution during the festive period. The state, in its magnanimity, compassionately increased the decibels to accommodate leisure and hospitality business interest,” she said.

“We urged them to apply for sound control permits to enable us to reach out and notify the host community of the intended programme and further deploy our officials to the venue for proper monitoring and prevention of excessive noise pollution,” she explained.

Fasawe noted that an invitation was extended to Quilox management, like every other stakeholder, which was ignored by the club.

All effort was made to contact the lawmaker or his media aide for their side of the story.
