Lagos State GOVT Shuts Down Hotel, Night Club For Violating COVID-19 Lockdown Order
The Lagos State Government has shut a hotel and a club in the Badagry West Local Council Development Area for alleged contravention of the new guidelines issued by the government to operators of hotels, clubs and other entertainment outfits in the state.
The facilities include Maggi Hotel, and Tambari Theatre Art (Night Club).
The Special Adviser to the Governor on Tourism, Arts and Culture, Mr Solomon Bonu disclosed this in a statement on Sunday.
“It was also discovered that there is a high level of immorality going on in these places. The Night Club has become home for strippers, drug barons, and all sorts of mischief,” Bonu said.
He expressed displeasure at the unlawful practices by the management of the two facilities, stressing that the guidelines issued by the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture were not followed in spite of advocacy by government.
Bonu added that legal action will be instituted against the owners of the hotel and night club to ensure appropriate sanctions are meted out.
“We’ll bring the full weight of the law on these erring operators and ensure that they show total compliance level before they can regain access to these facilities. This, the government believes, will send a signal to others who are still operating illegally in different parts of the state,” he said.
