The Lagos State Safety Commission has shut 33 facilities across the state for reopening business against its laid down protocols.
Adewumi Okoh, the commission’s spokesperson, said the facilities consists of bars, gyms, hotels, spas and lounges. She listed some of the facilities to include West gate Arena, Ikosi Isheri; Glovic Bar & Restaurant, Toyin Street, Ikeja; Lounge 50, Masha-Surulere; Innoville Shopping plaza, Ikeja; Trendor Hotels, Fadeyi; Esado Suites, Olanrewaju street, Ikeja, and Ritalori Hotel, Taoridi street, Surulere.
Okoh said the facilities were sealed during an enforcement exercise supervised by Lanre Mojola, the Director-General of the Commission.
The commission added that hairdressing salons that have been accredited by the Lagos State Safety Commission (LSC) could now open strictly by appointment with a maximum occupancy of 40 per cent of the total floor space at any given time, while restaurants and eateries should continue to operate on a takeout basis.
Private businesses and organisations are encouraged to register with the state government for the approval of opening of business.
Mojola emphasised that the commission will continue its enforcement exercise across the state, to identify businesses that have not registered and all erring facilities.
