The state government has vowed to make the city, the biggest in Africa, noise-free by 2020.
Following the latest crackdown, its general manager Bola Shabi said the agency would no longer allow people to pray in makeshift buildings and tents.
Mr Shabi said noise levels had been reduced by about 35%, but this was not a “pass mark yet”. “Enforcement is a continuous exercise and we have set a target for ourselves. We want to ensure that Lagos is noise-free by the year 2020,” he said.
Mr Shabi said mosques complied with their instructions more than churches because when they are ordered to shut down.
Christians form the majority in the city.
