The lagos state government says it will not condone any form of abuse of power by its officials. This was emphasised by the commissioner for the environment Babatunde Durosinmi Ettti as six LAGESC officers were caught in the act of defrauding some hoteliers.
The managers of the hotels located in Omole and Akowonjo reported the nefarious activities of the LAGESC officials to the ministry. Consequently an investigation was carried out with video and audio evidences gathered.
The hoteliers while appreciating the state government explained their ordeals in the hands of the fraudsters.
The commissioner said appropriate disciplinary measures would be metted out to serve as deterrent to others.
Residents have been urged to always request for means of identification from law enforcement officers, cross check abatement notices and report unauthorized activities to the ministry.
