Lagos taskforce disperses birthday party as organisers block road

Must Read

Officials of the Lagos State Taskforce recently dispersed a birthday party at Yaba for occupying a large percentage of the road, thereby inconveniencing other road users, and has threatened to henceforth arrest anyone caught in such manner.

This was disclosed in a statement signed by the agency’s Director, Press and Public Affairs, Gbadeyan Abdbulraheem, and posted on its official X handle on Tuesday.

According to the statement, the agency’s Chairman, CSP Shola Jejeloye, described the act as “selfish and inconsiderate” by individuals who deliberately take actions that cause discomfort to other law abiding individuals in the state.

It read, “Jejeloye 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% 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.

“It is highly unacceptable that one would selfishly and ignorantly cordone off an entire street to throw parties and social events and thereby causing noise pollution and traffic in the area.

“It is the height of irresponsibility and henceforth anyone caught carrying out such a foolish act will be arrested and charged to the mobile court immediately.”

Jejeloye also appealed to Lagosians who are in the habit of blocking streets and roads in the state in the name of carrying out some form of celebration to desist forthwith or face the wrath of the law.

He further urged members of the public to report any activity of blockage of inner streets or roads for social gatherings to the nearest police station or to the Lagos State Taskforce for a necessary action.
