Beautify your house or go to jail - Lagos State Government.


These people will not kill somebody with all their laws! The new law now is; beautify your house or go to jail! What the Lagos State Commissioner for Environment Tunji Bello said today... 
It is now mandatory for tenement/owners and occupiers to landscape and beautify the perimeter areas of their properties. A violation of this would attract N250, 000 or the amount the state would incur if it decides to carry out the beautification, or six months imprisonment or other non-custodian sentences…also anyone caught felling trees in the state or trimming them without permission would be fined a minimum of N50, 000 or sent to one year imprisonment.
It is also an offence to walk on lawns and gardens. Urinating, defecating in any of the parks, gardens and open spaces; loitering or soliciting for illegal purposes, smoking and dumping refuse among others in the parks are also offences.” The commissioner saidLagos State government want Lagos to be as beautiful as Singapore. Hehe! There's even an agency that will implement the law; it's called the Lagos State Parks and Gardens Agency, LASPARK, which was inaugurated yesterday.
