A hotel and a club in the Badagry West Local Council Development Area have been shut down for alleged contravention of the new guidelines issued by the government to operators of hotels, clubs and other entertainment outfits in the state.

The Special Adviser to the Governor on Tourism, Arts and Culture, Mr Solomon Bonu, in a statement on Sunday, said the affected facilities in the action by the State Government were Maggi Hotel and Tambari Theatre Art (a night club) opened for business in defiance to government’s directives.

“It was also discovered that there was a high level of immorality going on in those places. The night club had become home for strippers, drug barons and all sorts of mischief,” Bonu added.

He expressed displeasure at the unlawful practices by the management of the two facilities, stressing that the guidelines issued by the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture were not followed in spite of advocacy by government.

Bonu said legal action would be instituted against the owners of the hotel and night club to serve as a deterrent to others.

“We’ll bring the full weight of the law on these erring operators and ensure that they show total compliance level before they can regain access to these facilities. This, the government believes, will send a signal to others who are still operating illegally in different parts of the state,” he said.

While noting that surveillance and monitoring would continue, the special adviser pleaded with residents to provide information that could assist in discovering other hotels and clubhouses still operating illegally in different parts of Lagos.
