Pictures: Again, Lagos State Government Shuts Down Snazzy Nightclub Quilox

The Lagos State Government has shut down Quilox, a popular nightclub on Ozumba Mbadiwe Street, Victoria Island, Lagos, over noise pollution.

A look through history shows that this isn’t the first time the government had had to close the club. It was initially closed in 2019. At the time the founder of the club, Shina Peller, was a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress.

In 2020, it was closed again. This time, the reason for the closure was hinged on the coronavirus pandemic. It wasn’t the only business affected by the closure order, though.

The latest closure comes after the club hosted that lasted over 24 hours straight. Residents of the area had repeatedly complained to the authorities about the noise pollution, forcing the Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA) to move in and shut down the place.

In a statement, LASEPA stated that it had to shut down the club for its failure to comply with directives on organising events and not obtaining sound control permit from the agency. the closure had caused the club to trend on social media, with tweeps offering their thoughts on it.

It remains to be seen when the club, which was established exactly nine years ago and has become the go-to place for many celebrities who want to unwind, will be reopened.
