School battles church over noise pollution

Churches shouldn’t keep sending out negative vibes, It makes reaching out a lot more difficult. More people wouldn’t come because our loudspeakers are disturbing the immediate community, God is the one that draws men, and He’s still doing it.

RCCG-LOGO[1]The management of Cambridge College, Lagos, has engaged a church, the Rose of Sharon parish of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, on Adekunle Fajuyi road, GRA Ikeja, in a battle over noise pollution.

The school has also threatened to petition the Lagos State Ministry of Environment to check the noise activity of the church.

The Director of the school, Mr. Wale Odunlami, made this known to our correspondent on Thursday.

According to Odunlami, the church is disturbing the environment of the college with uncontrolled and loud noise from its sound system.

He added, “We have been to the church three times to complain but nothing has changed. They are becoming a nuisance to the environment.   Our pupils are sitting for the WASSCE and the CIE now. We have been in this location for almost 20 years and we have never had it so bad. You can hear the noise a kilometre away. This week alone, they have held morning services two times and the noise was unbearable to pupils sitting for examination.
