Regulate Your Noise Or Get Prosecuted -FG Tells Worship Centers

The Federal Government has threatened to prosecute worship centers for noise pollution. This was confirmed on Sunday by the National Environmental Standards and Regulations Enforcement Agency (NESREA) Director-General of NESREA, Aliyu Jauro.

NESREA said it’s empowered to prosecute churches and mosques for using loud speakers without control.

Jauro said noise is a serious environmental pollutant which affects plants, animals and humans.

He said: “Once they are subjected to the noise, it leads to a lot of health problems ranging from hypertension and other diseases. So, as an agency, we have a specific regulation on noise control.

“What we do as an agency is that we go out to ensure compliance. There is a lot of activities people engage that affect the environment and individuals. We receive complaints from a lot of people.

“For instance, places like churches, mosques, even industries are causing a lot of noise which we receive complaints from people, so we do visit such areas, sensitising them about the problem people are facing.”
