Lagos Gov shuts Quilox club
The Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA) has closed the famous Quilox Club on Ozumba Mbadwe Road, Victoria Island for
The club owned by an individual from the House of Reps, Shina Peller was closed for its inability to follow mandates on coordinating occasions and not getting a sound control grant, said LASEPA Head supervisor, Dolapo Fasawe in an explanation on Sunday.
Fasawe said that the organization got trouble calls with video proof from concerned neighbors to help their cases on supposed environmental nuisance executed by the club. “Lagos had earlier increased the decibels to accommodate leisure/hospitality business interests. We, however, urged them to apply for sound control permits before hosting events to enable us to reach out to the host community of the intended programmed and further deploy our officials to the venue for proper monitoring and prevention of excessive noise pollution,” she explained.
As per her, an invitation was reached out to Quilox Club, similar to each and every other partner, however it was disregarded by the administration because of reasons most popular to them.
That’s what she noticed “no individual or gathering is greater than society”, adding that the office is as yet putting forth attempts to guarantee that all interests are safeguarded under the law.
Peller, who represents Iseyin/Itesiwaju/Kajola/Iwajowa Federal constituency in Oyo State, had in June 2022 dumped the APC and joined the Accord Party in front of the 2023 general races.
His club was recently closed in December 2019 over noise pollution and traffic congestion and in July 2020 for disobeying Coronavirus rules.
