Lagos State Government has issued a 30-day ultimatum to the owners and occupiers of residential buildings illegally converted to churches, mosques, clubhouses, lounges, and bars without approval for change of use to revert to the original use of the structure.

This ultimatum was given by the Lagos State Commissioner for Environment and Water Resources, Tokunbo Wahab, in a statement.

The commissioner said the notice is due to the distortion of the master plan of Lagos State by some persons who have been disregarding the regulatory provisions of the law, turning residential areas into clubhouses and worship centres thereby constituting a nuisance to the environment.
