Lagos Bans Closure Of Streets For Parties, Social Events, Offenders To Be Arrested, Prosecuted

The Lagos State Government has condemned in its entirety the way and manner in which some residents in some parts of the State close inner roads/streets to hold social events thereby inconveniencing other road users and constituting nuisance to the society.

The condemnation was made by the Chairman of the Lagos State Task Force CSP Shola Jejeloye, who described the act as selfish and inconsiderate of residents who deliberately take actions that cause discomfort to other law-abiding individuals in the State.

Jejeloye disclosed that the Agency recently had to disrupt a birthday celebration on a street in Yaba when it was discovered that the celebrants and guests had occupied 95% of the road thereby slowing down vehicular movement and inconveniencing Lagosians going about their businesses.

He stated that places like Lagos Island, Oworonshoki and Agege are major areas where such illegal activities are predominant, warning that the Lagos State Task Force intends to initiate an action plan that would put such inconveniences in check.

He however,  appealed to Lagosians who are in the habit of blocking streets and roads all in the name of carrying out some form of celebration to desist or face the wrath of the law. He implored residents across the state to use either private or government-owned facilities in their vicinity to hold social events.
