Lagos Shuts Down Construction Company for Illegal Discharge

The Lagos State Wastewater Management Office (LSWMO) has sealed off Carrillion Construction’s building in Victoria Island for the illegal discharge of sewage into public drainage via a pumping machine.

Tokunbo Wahab, Lagos State Commissioner for Environment, in a post on his X handle said the building was shut down on Wednesday.

“The Lagos State Wastewater Management Office (LSWMO) today Wednesday 24th April, 2024 sealed off the office building of Carrillion Construction at Plot 10b, T.F Kuboye Street, Oniru extension, Victoria Island after it was discovered that the building had been carrying out illegal discharge of sewage into the public drainage via a pumping machine.”

The Lagos State Government reiterates its zero tolerance for illegal discharge of untreated sewage/ wastewater into the public drains and water bodies.

Citizens are therefore advised to desist from this unlawful act and serious act of degradation of our environment.
