The Lagos State Government has announced that it has launched a full-scale war on indiscriminate disposal of waste, warning that anyone caught violating environmental laws within the State will face the full wrath of the law.
The state Commissioner for the Environment, Dr. Babatunde Adejare, made the declaration at an interactive session with media excutives in Lagos at the weekend.
The commissioner spoke against the backdrop of the worsening situation where some Lagos residents have formed the habit of dumping waste at illegal spots, thereby sabotaging on-going efforts to rid Lagos State of filth.
Adejare noted with concern that soon after littered black spots and illegal dumping sites were cleared, some residents would return and dump waste at the same spots.
