A hotel belonging to former Super Eagles captain, Kanu Nwankwo, has been sealed by officials of Lagos State Government.
The hotel, Hardley Apartments, is located on Victoria Island and was among facilities shut down by the Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency over alleged noise and air pollution.
The Director of Enforcement of the agency, Kayode Bello, claimed that the generators powering the hotel had large exhaust pipes facing the road and after it was tested, it was discovered that it gave off thick gaseous emissions.
Bello told newsmen that, “Even the sound is going to be more than 45 decibels at night. We want you to comply, that is the reason we are here. We have been on this for more than a year.”
Kanu’s hotel was among other hotels, churches and mosques sealed across the state on Monday over alleged air and noise pollution.
It was reported that at least 30 facilities were shut in areas including Ketu, Ikorodu, Ibeju-Lekki, Victoria Island and Surulere.
LASEPA said the owners of the facilities had been contacted several times in the last one year, adding that they refused to fully complied with LASEPA’s instructions.
