Lagos to Prosecute 11 Nightclub Employees for Attack on LASEPA Officials

The Lagos State Commissioner for Environment and Water Resources, Tokunbo Wahab, has vowed to prosecute all 11 employees of 10 POTS Night Club, located at 2A Admiralty Way, Lekki, who assaulted state officials on duty.

The Director, Public Affairs, Kunle Adeshina, said this in a statement on Sunday in Lagos.

Adeshina said the club staff also broke the seal of the Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency.

He said that the commissioner spoke in the aftermath of the arrest of the 11 employees (four males, seven females) of the night club, who were arrested after brutalising state officials who had earlier sealed the premises for noise pollution.

He added that they would all be arraigned before appropriate courts of law on Monday along with the property owner to serve as a deterrent to others who might consider embracing such illegal options.

“The arrested employees removed the seal of LASEPA which was used to secure the premises between 11.11 a.m and 11.33 a.m on Saturday October 14, following enforcement activities

“By 12.44 p.m. when LASEPA operatives returned to the club, it had been reopened and back to business.

“Attempts to reseal the premises were violently resisted by the staffers, inflicting bodily harm on state officials, necessitating the call for reinforcement of security,” Adeshina said.
