The LASEPA boss said the agency was inundated with complaints that beer parlours and restaurants are causing noise pollution with live band music.

He added that before a live band music is allowed in bars and restaurants permit from the agency must be obtained.

His word, “‎any complaint from the residents henceforth, there will be sanction. They must obtain permit to do so and failure to obtain permit, the fine is N500, 000. We must discourage needless noise making at our residences.”
