Lagos State Government has banned live band music in bars and restaurants within the state and persons that refuse to adhere will have to have to pay N500,000.

According to PM News,  the government also warned religious houses to procure sound proof in order to minimize the effect of noise pollution.

General Manager‎, Lagos State Environment Protection Agency, LASEPA, Adebola Shabi said the decision on noise pollution came as a result of the increasing rate of petitions by residents, who were lamenting the frequent disturbance from the beer parlours, clubs and religious houses.
