Hits: 0

The Lagos State Government has shut a hotel and a club in the Badagry West Local Council Development Area for alleged contravention of the new guidelines issued by the government to operators of hotels , clubs and other entertainment outfits in the state .

The Special Adviser to the Governor on Tourism, Arts and Culture, Mr Solomon Bonu , in a statement on Sunday, said the affected facilities , Maggi Hotel and Tambari Theatre Art (night club ) opened for business in defiance to government ’ s directives .

“It was also discovered that there was a high level of immorality going on in those places .

The night club had become home for strippers , drug barons and all sorts of mischief , ” Bonu added .

He expressed displeasure at the unlawful practices by the management of the two facilities , stressing that the guidelines issued by the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture were not followed in spite of advocacy by government .

Bonu said legal action would be instituted against the owners of the hotel and night club to serve as a deterrent to others.

“ We’ ll bring the full weight of the law on these erring operators and ensure that they show total compliance level before they can regain access to these facilities .

This , the government believes , will send a signal to others who are still operating illegally in different parts of the state, ” he said .

While noting that surveillance and monitoring would continue , the special adviser pleaded with residents to provide information that could assist in discovering other hotels and clubhouses still operating illegally in different parts of Lagos .
