Gov Makinde takes firm stance on law violators in Oyo State

By Femi Akinola

In the wake of the suspension of the Onido of Ido, Oba Gbolagade Muritala Babalola, a traditional ruler in Oyo State, Governor Seyi Makinde has unequivocally declared his commitment to dealing decisively with individuals, regardless of their status, who engage in unlawful activities across the state.

The suspension of Oba Gbolagade Babalola came after an investigation revealed his involvement with illegal miners in the state.

The State Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Dotun Oyelade, officially announced the suspension, emphasizing that it serves as a clear message to those who support criminal activities within the state.

In a parallel development, the Oyo State Government has taken a stern measure against noise pollution, sealing a branch of Christ Life Church at Golden Estate, Oluyole Area, Ibadan.

The State Commissioner for Environment and Natural Resources, Architect Abdulmojeed Mogbonjubola, explained that the decision was made to prevent the escalation of tensions between the church and residents.

According to Abdulmojeed, ministry officials visited the church premises on December 9th, 2023, in response to complaints from residents about noise pollution.

The officials recorded sound levels during various church activities, particularly the praise and worship segment, where the recorded sound measured 74 decibels.

The Commissioner highlighted that this action violated the Environmental Regulations of 2023, Section 58, Paragraph (b), which stipulates that noise levels in residential areas during the daytime must not exceed 65 decibels.

Despite a resolution meeting hosted by the ministry, the church continued to disobey regulations, leading to the decision to seal its premises.

Governor Seyi Makinde’s resolute stance and the government’s actions underscore their commitment to upholding the rule of law and ensuring the well-being of residents in Oyo State.
