The Lagos State Government has said that it will no longer tolerate party organisers who block streets.

This was made known by the Chairman of the Lagos State Taskforce, Shola Jeleoye, in a statement on Tuesday.

The Taskforce boss condemned in its entirety the way and manner some residents in some parts of the state carry our their social activities like birthday parties and naming ceremonies on the street and roads in the state, thereby inconveniencing other road users and constituting a nuisance to the society.

Jejeloye, who described the act as selfish and inconsiderate, said those involved deliberately take actions that cause discomfort to other law abiding individuals.

He disclosed that the Agency had to disrupt a birthday celebration on a street in Yaba (name withheld) when it was discovered that the celebrants and guests had occupied 95 percent of the road, thereby slowing down vehicular movement and grossly inconveniencing Lagosians going about their business.

The Chairman further stated that areas like Lagos Island, Oworonshoki and Agege are major areas where such activities are predominant and disclosed that the radar of the Lagos State Taskforce would be set up to put such actions in check forthwith.

Benti247 must you give ethnic colour to all your comments here.? So, your people from Idumota,  Orile Iganmu and Trade Fair don't block the roads fir their functions too. Or you're insinuating that only Yoruba live in Lagos???
The message from Lagos State doesn't mention any tribe or even religion.
If the government demolishes houses built on drainage and waterways.  Next day, you oeopkd would add ethnic colour to it.
"Lagos State government is demolishing Igbo peoples houses"
Are you saying the Igbos are stupid and lawless to build houses on drainage??
