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.

    1. Mshew. This is how to know a pig. Mr charge and bail lawyer, so all these years u just arrived from Mars to know it's illegal abi? If u were busy with other serious cases u wouldn't instigate the cancellation of sanitization days that has been there since I was a child. If u have nothing to clean in or house, volunteer urself to sweep 3rd mainland bridge na. Instead of researching what no one sent u. I have never heard anyone oppose this exercise before ur jobless self. Obuko pig lawyer. Take several seats

  2. If you don't restrict Africans to stay at home to clean the environment at least once a month, then it means the whole town will become refuses. Those fundamental human right is for the whites and not for black pigs who needed be put in cage in order to behave. See how dirty Nigeria was before Buhari/Idiagbon regime who introduced the measure. Yoga lawyer keep your confussion book to your self. Oyinbo self no dey play with who no pay refuse disposal fee lightly.

  11. You are one of the Lawyers who want to gain publicity but unfortunate this is a wrong choice. Humans are not restricted but restricted for a purpose - CLEANLINESS. It is just once a month and just for few hours. Do you have time to clean your house? You rush out in the morning and come back late, tired and for you to sit in your house and do thorough cleaning four 3 hours (7am - 10am) you are quoting law. Be creative, use your senses to look for a good case e.g Chibok Girls, proclaim for their release.
