Oyo govt to sanction churches, mosques, others for noise pollution

Published

on

Oyo State Commissioner for Environment and Water Resources, Chief Isaac Ishola, at the weekend narrated his ordeals in the hands of the General Overseer of a new generation church while attempting to seal off the church for violating environmental laws.

The commissioner said the General Overseer allegedly molested, harassed and insulted him on the church premises to prevent the sealing of the church.

Three churches were reportedly sealed off for alleged noise pollution and violating the government’s prescribed noise level.

Speaking with The Nation in his office at the weekend, the commissioner warned against violation of noise regulation laws.

He noted that the ministry would no longer tolerate what he called the impunity among religious bodies that were fond of exceeding the prescribed noise level.
