LASG Seals 19 Event Centres Over Safety Violations – Nineteen event centers have been sealed by the Lagos Safety Commission due to safety violations.
According to a statement from the commission, this was revealed on Thursday during an on-the-spot evaluation of event centers throughout the state by the organization’s director general, Lanre Mojola.

Lekki Coliseum, Leisure Park, La Madison, Haddasah, The Summit, Villa Part, De Dove, Magesty, The Podium, Celebrations Gardens, Tastee Event Centers, and White Stone are a some of the venues that have been sealed.
He emphasized that the commission will keep conducting regular inspections to make sure that safety regulations are followed throughout the state’s events and hospitality industries.
