The Lagos State Government has disclosed that it would arrest and prosecute anyone who closes the road to hold events.

Chairman of the Agency, CSP Shola Jejeloye described such act as selfish, stating that it causes discomfort to residents.

The government gave the warning in a statement released on its Instagram page on Wednesday, November 29.

The statement reads:

The Lagos State Taskforce has condemned in its entirety the way and manner in which some residents in some parts of the State close inner roads/streets to hold social events thereby inconveniencing other road users and constituting nuisance to the society.

Chairman of the Agency, CSP Shola Jejeloye described the act as selfish and inconsiderate of residents who deliberately take actions that cause discomfort to other law-abiding individuals in the State.

Jejeloye disclosed that the Agency recently had to disrupt a birthday celebration on a street in Yaba when it was discovered that the celebrants and guests had occupied 95% of the road thereby slowing down vehicular movement and inconveniencing Lagosians going about their businesses

 He stated that places like Lagos Island, Oworonshoki and Agege are major areas where such illegal activities are predominant, warning that the Lagos State Task Force intends to initiate an action plan that would put such inconvenience in check.

 In his words, “It is highly unacceptable that one would selfishly and ignorantly cordon off an entire street to throw parties and hold social events causing gridlock in an area. It is the height of irresponsibility. Henceforth, anyone caught carrying out such a foolish act will be arrested and charged to the mobile court for prosecution”.
