The chairman of the Ondo state waste management authority Shina Fadamitan attested that the state government would not tolerate any act of environmental indiscipline from the residents of the state.

He said: “We also caution residents against indiscriminate dumping of wastes in unauthorised places.

“The agency has embarked on night policing across the Akure metropolis and some other parts of the state. Anybody caught violating the environmental laws of the state would be made to face the full wrath of the law.”

Fadamitan, who noted that the state government was committed to the health of the people of the state, stressed that it is also the responsibility of the residents to keep their surroundings clean in order to prevent flood and ward-off diseases and other social ills.

In his reaction, the permanent secretary of the ministry of environment Gray Eshofonie appealed to the people to support the government to achieve the desired result.

He said: “The government was doing everything possible to check environmental degradation.”

In the same vein, to check environmental degradation, the Kick Against Indiscipline (KAI) brigade, on Monday, July 4, began a clampdown on street hawkers and traders for violating the laws of Lagos state.

The state governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, had decided to be hard on the sellers following the destruction of about 49 BRT buses after a hawker was pursued into it by KAI officers.
