Seven houses were, weekend, sealed by the Lagos State Government, over non-compliance with the state environmental law.
Managing Director of Lagos State Waste Management Agency, LAWMA, Mr. Ola Oresanya, said the houses involved were at Audu Street, Abule-Oja, Akoka and would be sanctioned appropriately.
He said the occupants of the houses were caught dumping refuse into water channels, which would eventually lead to flooding, adding that the houses did not have refuse containers in front of their premises.
“which means they have been dumping refuse in water channels before now, despite several appeals by the state government to shun such unhealthy, dangerous act.
“Before we reopen the sealed houses, each of the house must provide refuse containers in their premises, must have sign on to patronise any of the Private Sector Participants, PSP and must give assurance that they would desist from indiscriminate dumping of refuse in the area,” he added.
