The Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA) says it has begun sensitising traditional rulers and Community Development Associations (CDAs) on noise pollution.

The General Manager of LASEPA, Mr Adebola Shabi, made the disclosure to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on today in Lagos.

According to him, the agency considers sensitisation of the people and the authorities at the grassroots as a quick means of solving the problem of noise pollution in the state.

“We have even taken the crusade on the issue of noise pollution down to the traditional rulers and local chiefs.

We are involving the traditional rulers and local chiefs now because they are the custodians of their localities and they have to educate their people on noise pollution.

We started at Oworonsoki to Ikosi, Ketu, Ojokoro and some other areas too.

In these areas, we met with the traditional rulers, local chiefs, CDAs, all the religious houses and everybody in the locality on the need to check noise pollution,” he said.

According to Shabi, as at today the issue of noise pollution has drastically reduced in those areas.

The LASEPA general manager said that there was the need for the local people to understood the negative effects of noise and check it. (NAN)
