Lagos closes 70 Churches & 20 Mosques to reduce high Noise

The government of Lagos State has shut 70 churches and 20 mosques in an attempt to reduce high noise levels. About 10 hotels, pubs and club houses were also closed.

Lagos has a population of around 20 million, with correspondents saying noise - from the beep of car horns, to the Muslim call to prayer and the singing in churches - being its soundtrack.

In August, the authorities closed 22 premises after residents complained about the noise emanating from them.
