Noise Pollution: Lagos Shuts Down Quilox

The Lagos State Government has sealed off down the popular nightclub, Quilox, at Ozumba Mbadiwe Road, Victoria Island area of the state.

The club was shut down on Saturday by the state's Environmental Protection Agency over non-compliance to LASEPA’s directive and organising events without obtaining a sound control permit.

Dr Dolapo Fasewe, LASEPA General Manager, speaking on the seal-off exercise, said that the measure became necessary following distress calls with video evidence(s) received from concerned neighbours.

“To avert a situation like this, we recently held a stakeholder’s parley with the Owners/ Chief Executive Officers of nightclubs in the state to address the issue of noise pollution during the festive period.

“The states in its magnanimity, compassionately increased the decibels to accommodate leisure/hospitality business interest.

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

“Invitation was extended to Quilox club like every other stakeholder was ignored by the club for reasons best known to them.

“Entertainment and Lagos are like a conjoined twin, thus our prolific intervention to preserve the sanctity of the state and at the same time sustain its economic relevance through aggressive environmental sustainability drive."
