The club’s closure was disclosed in a statement posted on the Lagos State Government’s official Facebook page.
Titled “Noise Pollution: Lagos Shuts Quilox Club”, the statement said the club located at Ozumba Mbadiwe Street, Victoria Island, failed to adhere to a directive on obtaining sound control permit from the Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA)
“The Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA) on Saturday shut the popular Quilox Club on Ozumba Mbadwe Street, Victoria Island for its failure to comply with directives on organising events and not obtaining a sound control permit from the Agency. The enforcement exercise, which was jointly carried out by the officials of the agency and the Lagos State Task Force, was also a result of several complaints made by residents in the area.
It further said an invitation was extended to Quilox Club, like every other stakeholder, but was ignored by the management.
It added that the Agency is still making efforts to ensure that all interests are protected under the law.
“Entertainment and Lagos are like a conjoined twin, thus our prolific intervention to preserve the sanctity of the State and at the same time sustained its economic relevance through aggressive environmental sustainability drive. To support the entrepreneurship interest of the operators. We came up with a communique which serves as a bond guiding all parties on the mode of operations during the yuletide period and the attendant consequences for non-compliance to the agreement”, Fasawe added.
