Lagos—Lagos  State Government, weekend warned that heavy sanction awaited corporate organisations or individuals whose activities or operations put the lives of citizens at risk.

Speaking through the Special Adviser to the state governor on Environment, Dr. Taofeeq Folami, it decried indiscriminate dumping of refuse and blockage of free flow of drainage, saying anyone caught would be severely dealt with.

Dr. Folami spoke while monitoring July edition of the sanitation exercise in Agege Local Council Area.
Folami lamented that indiscriminate dumping of refuse by residents into drainage channels and canals in the state was impeding the government efforts at achieving free flow of drainage.

According to him, “We noticed that some residents rather than patronize genuine waste collector, dump their refuse into the canals, blocking the flow of water. We will be focusing on this to ensure that citizens desist from this act and inculcate the habit of disposing their waste through the proper channels”
