A Nigerian woman has complained to the Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA) about noise pollution at a Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) worship centre.

The lady, identified as Oreoluwa, revealed this in a tweet on Saturday, January 28, rejoicing that the agency called her and promised to fix the problem.

She mentioned that the church has three services per week, and that the noise from the building made it difficult for her to take calls or sleep.

In her words:

“What inspired me was frustration.

“It was a Sunday morning, barely 7am and the praise and worship from the church some buildings away woke me up before I was ready. This happens every time they have a service, three times a week. It was also too loud for me to take phone calls or focus on anything at all.”

Continuing, Oreoluwa shared how she took action.

So, I opened my internet browser, searched for LASEPA’s contact lines and filled the complaint form.”

When asked if the problem was resolved after she made the report, Oreoluwa said that the pollution was no longer the same as in the past. She said it was reduced.

The Nigerian expressed relief that she got assurances from the agency to call them if nothing changes.

“There was almost no noise till they went further in the service and increased it a little. It’s not the same but it’s still not barest minimum yet. I have the assurance of the agency to contact them for a follow-up report if nothing changes.

“There was this mosque directly opposite my house back then. They legit didn’t have more than 25-30 worshippers max, but the kind of loudspeakers and equipments they use ehnnn …one of the loudspeakers was even facing my room window directly…omoooo.”

@funmi_oyedokun said:

“I need to report a house that refused to repair their drainage and dug into the road for their liquid waste to flow into. You sharing this has given me the drive to do so.”

@godsgiftufuoma said:

“This agency should be made public, like they need enough advert. How can there be noise almost everywhere you go in Nigeria. Currently am even planing on building an underground house to escape this noise pollution in Nigeria.”

A prayer in the mosque, lasts maximum of 10 - 15 minutes and that's it, nothing like second service. A Church service lasts for minimum of 2hours, and that's just for one service, you can have a second, and possibly even a third service. Y'all keep lying to yourselves.
