Why the government sealed the Oyo church – Commissioner explains


On Friday, the Oyo State Government took the decision to close down a branch of Christ Life Church situated in Golden Estate, Oluyole, Ibadan South-West Local Government Area.

The Commissioner for Environment and Natural Resources, Abdulmojeed Mogbonjubola, revealed that despite the ministry’s attempts to mediate and resolve complaints from residents regarding noise issues, the church’s management remained uncooperative.

Consequently, the government sealed the church premises to prevent potential tensions from escalating on Sunday, citing a violation of environmental regulations related to noise levels in residential areas.

The ministry had conducted sound level measurements on November 9, 2023, indicating an average reading of 74 decibels during the church activities, surpassing the permissible limit of 65 decibels.

Despite a resolution meeting on November 29, 2023, where the church declined to sign an undertaking letter, citing the need for approval from its headquarters, the state government opted to seal the church due to continued non-compliance with regulations.
