SWITZERLAND, AUGUST 29 – The Lagos State Government, on Tuesday, sealed a building at 10A Alexander Road, Ikoyi for contravening the Greening Law of the State after an unauthorised felling of trees without the appropriate permit and approval from the State government.

According to the Lagos State Government, the enforcement for compliance, which was jointly carried out by the Lagos State Parks and Garden Agency (LASPARK) and Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA), was based on the directive of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu after the property owner refused to comply with the abatement notice earlier served to him by LASPARK.

Speaking during the enforcement exercise, the General Managers of LASPARK, Mrs Bilikiss Adebiyi-Abiola maintained that the action became expedient in order to establish the need for property owners to comply with the greening provisions of the state government.

Also, the General Manager of LASEPA, Dr. Dolapo Fasawe, recalled that the two Agencies swung into action by visiting the property to authenticate the validity of the claim and surprisingly met the gate under lock and key hence the need for this action.

She commended the concerned citizen who alerted the government and further enjoined the public to support the greening vision of the State by serving as environmental watchdogs in the preservation of nature in the interest of all
