Lagos State Govt Shuts Down Law Maker Shina Peller's Night Club Quilox Over Noise Pollution

The Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency, on Saturday, shut down a popular nightclub, Quilox, in Victoria Island , Lagos for organising an event without a sound control permit.

The General Manager, LASEPA, Dolapo Fasawe, disclosed that the agency received several distress calls with video evidence from concerned neighbours on the alleged environmental nuisance constituted by the club.

She said, “To avert situations like this, we recently held a stakeholders’ parley with the owners and chief executive officers of night clubs in the state to address the issue of noise pollution during the festive period. The state, in its magnanimity, compassionately increased the decibels to accommodate leisure and hospitality business interest.

“We urged them to apply for sound control permits to enable us to reach out and notify the host community of the intended programme and further deploy our officials to the venue for proper monitoring and prevention of excessive noise pollution.”

Quilox is owned by Mr Shina Peller, federal lawmaker representing Iseyin/Itesiwaju/Kajola/Iwajowa Federal Constituency, Oyo State.

  1. Him no settle well daswhy

    1. The way people even complained last week of serious traffic in front of that club. My neighnour said cars were packed on more than 2 lanes. Nigeria my country, i hope this noise matter , has nothing to do with greasing their palms o. 🙄 Let noise not kill residents after the oil has reached the elbows o.

  2. Passed here yesterday and me think there's more to this. 👌

  3. Dear Stella, I passed through this road last Monday where I was recording the traffic situation caused by the nuisance of the club despite the presence of LASTMA, LCC, two lanes were blocked at about 7am early hours of Monday. One of the guards spotted me recording with my phone attacked our vehicle and raised punches at me but thank God I wasn't linched another came with weapon to attack me but sustained an injury on my arm. I've the video with me till now and ever ready to testify against their Rubbish along that road.

  4. Why did government issue a permit for a club to be built there? Why were there no restrictions or guidelines in the construction and planning to reduce noise pollution and traffic obstruction? Why didn't the concerned government's agencies tow away the wrongfully parked cars?

    Peller is no longer in APC and should be careful flouting rules this season.
