Lagos decries proliferation of dumpsites in Badagry

The Lagos State Government has raised the alarm over proliferation of illegal dumpsites in the metropolis, saying that the habit could cause an outbreak of an epidemic.

The Commissioner for Environment, Dr. Babatunde Adejare, stated this, at the weekend, while monitoring the monthly environmental sanitation exercise in Badagry, and warned that the government had declared zero tolerance for all forms of environmental degradation and would prosecute anyone or corporate organisation violating its laws.

Adejare said such dumpsites that currently littered some parts of the Lagos metropolis would not be tolerated at ports and other points of entry into the country.
