Lagos Lawyer Wants Environmental Sanitation Cancelled In Lagos

A Lagos-based lawyer, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, has asked a Federal High Court in Lagos to put a stop to the monthly environmental sanitation exercise in Lagos State.
The lawyer is asking the court to declare as illegal, the monthly exercise, during which citizens’ movements were restricted.
The applicant in his motion on notice argued that the imposed environmental sanitation on every last Saturday of the month did not have any legal backing.
According to him, the restriction of people’s movement was in conflict with Sections 35 and 41 of the Constitution, which guarantees rights to personal liberty and  freedom of movement.
Adegboruwa stated that the restriction also violates  Article XII of the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights (Ratification and Enforcement) Act, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004.

He is therefore asking the court to declare that the Lagos State Government and its agents do not have the legal backing to restrict movement of Lagos residents on the last Saturday of the month.
