The Lagos State Government on Friday shut Quilox Restaurant Bar Night Club located in Victoria Island over noise pollution and other environmental infractions.
Officials of the Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA) stormed the club and immediately sealed it.
Commissioner for the Environment and Water Resources, Tokunbo Wahab on his X handle tweeted: “Quilox Club was earlier today sealed over noise pollution and other environmental infractions.”
Also, LASEPA, on its X handle said a major part of its advocacy efforts towards a conducive Lagos for all is to ensure compliance with the laid down regulations for noise control.
“Following continuous petitions and thorough assessment, LASEPA officials sealed off Quilox Night Life, situated in Victoria Island, due to significant environmental infractions.
“The decision to close the establishment stems from multiple concerns, including severe traffic congestion in the vicinity and a flagrant disregard for the agency’s directives,” it said.
LASEPA added that Quilox Restaurant Bar Night Club had been found in non-compliance with essential environmental regulations set by the agency.
“We take our charge of preserving the environment very seriously and will continue to take decisive steps to rid Lagos of pollution,” it added.
