Feb 21, 2012 – Lagos Shuts Down Six Churches Over Noise Pollution

The officials of Lagos State Environmental Protective Agency (LASEPA) have shut down six churches in Lagos Mainland areas over noise pollution. Below are the churches affected

  •  The Lord’s Chosen Charismatic Ministry Bible Church, FESTAC
  • The Chapter of Christ Church, Oregun, Ikeja
  • Assemblies of God Church, Ikeja
  • The Golden Gate Church, Ifako-Ijaiye
  • Seek and Save Ministry, Abule Egba.

According to PM News, the agency has warned the churches to reduce the noise coming from their worship centers or face sanctions before carrying out its threat over the weekend.

Defending the agency’s action, General Manager, LASEPA, Engr. Rasheed Shabi said some of the churches rebuffed meetings called by the agency on how to resolve the issue.

The agency’s stance is clear on issue of noise pollution level permitted. This has been communicated to all worship centers in the state. The level of noise pollution allowed in the state is between 55 decibel during the day and 42 to 45 decibel at night,” he said.

The general manager of LASEPA is Rasheed Shabi (Guess this has a religious undertone)

    It’s not about stopping church fellowship…I am a christian and I have been thinking about this for years now..obviously churches should remove every loud speakers any let it been only on the internal ones inside. it doesn’t make any sense imposing and forcefully wanting people to listen to what they are not comfortable with.I’m just back from church and the next compound is playing unpleasant noise from drums….reducing noise wont stop any church from getting their costumers….

    God has never directed, instructed any body distopping others for his sake. After all, the church members should know their programs, and time table for once. Many of the churches will be playing a religious music when and while the church is empty.If you complain, they tag you with ungodly name. We just need to be wise and reasonable.That shows how lawless our nation is.
