CITIZENS COMPASS – As part of its efforts to rid garages, parks, roadsides from illegal liquor sales and consumption by motorists and drivers, in Lagos State, the Lagos Environmental Sanitation Corps (LAGESC) popularly known as KAI has embarked on raids which resulted in seizures of liquor drinks worth N2m in the state. 

Corps Marshal of the Agency, CP Gbemisola Akinpelu (retd) who disclosed this to newsmen said the raids took place during the week. 

She said that the raids will be a continous exercise due to the displeasure expressed by the state government at the alarming rate liquor drinks are sold in garages, motor parks, roadsides and in traffic. 

Akinpelu further revealed that the negative trend poses grave danger to the psychological, mental and general well-being of drivers, motorists and pedestrians alike.  

She highlighted that the confiscated liquor drinks will be handed over to the appropriate authorities for destruction, adding that the exercise 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 in its drive to rid the State of environmental nuisances.
