Lagos state shuts churches

The Lagos state Government said it has shut down a branch of the Lord's Chosen Charismatic Ministry in Surulere and six other churches in the state over noise pollution. Other affected churches are Bible Church, FESTAC; The Chapter of Christ Church, Oregun; Assemblies of God's Church, Ikeja; The Golden Gate Church, Ifako-Ijaiye, and Seek and Save Ministry, Abule Egba.

A statement from the state Environmental Protection Agency, on Tuesday, said its official were forced to act after the churches continually ignored pre-sanction notices given to them to reduce the noise coming from their worship centres.

General Manager, LASEPA, Rasheed Shabi, said the abatement notices issued to the churches were to make them take the issue seriously all to no avail
