As part of efforts to rid garages, parks, roadsides in Lagos from illegal liquor sales and consumption by motorists and drivers, the Lagos Environmental Sanitation Corps (LAGESC) popularly known as KAI embarked on raids during the week which resulted in seizures of drinks worth 2 million naira in Lagos.
Corps Marshal of the Agency, CP Gbemisola Akinpelu (retd.) disclosed that the raids will remain a continuous exercise due to the displeasure expressed by the State Government at the rate liquor drinks are sold in garages, motor parks, roadsides and in traffic.
In a statement signed by the head, public Affairs, Ajayi Lukman on Saturday, the CM further revealed that the negative trend poses grave danger to the psychological, mental and healthy well-being of drivers, motorists and pedestrians.
She highlighted that the confiscated liquor drinks will be handed over to the appropriate authorities for destruction which will be witnessed by the Agency and journalists.
Akinpelu finally read the riot act to street traders to desist from displaying liquor drinks for sale in garages, motor parks, roadsides and in traffic, warning that the Agency will not relent on its drive to rid the State.Follow us on social media
