He stated that the arrested individuals would be charged to court for prosecution, noting that the action would send warning signals to other residents flouting environmental laws.
“We will no longer tolerate environmental lawlessness. We have issued releases, and tried all means to ensure that our people stop this act of indiscriminate dumping of refuse which has become a menace.

I have ordered immediate closure of all shops and houses which are within 50m range of any road median around this Onikolobo, Panseke and Quarry road here in Abeokuta, and those arrested would be charged to court tomorrow,” he maintained.
