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.

Speaking on the closure of the facilities, Special Adviser to the governor on Tourism, Arts and Culture, Mr Solomon Bonu, said it was discovered that there was a high level of immorality going on at the two facilities.

He said, “The night club has become home for strippers, drug barons and all sorts of mischief.”

Bonu disclosed that legal action would be instituted against the owners of the hotel and night club to ensure appropriate sanctions are meted out and serve as a deterrent to others.

While noting that the exercise of monitoring the level of compliance across the state continues, he pleaded with residents to provide useful information that would assist in discovering other hotels and clubhouses still operating in different parts of Lagos. 

“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.
