The headquarters of the Lord's Chosen and Charismatic Revival Church on Ijesha, Oshodi-Apapa Expressway, Lagos, were sealed off by the Lagos State Government over environmental nuisance.
The Officials of the Ministry of the Environment shut down the Church in the morning of on October 6, 2013, and prevented the worshippers from having their Sunday service usually attended by thousands of faithful.
Investigations revealed that the Church does not have solid waste disposal facility. It burns its waste inside the Church premises, thereby exposing the lives of its worshippers to serious health hazard.
A substantial part of the sprawling Church lies on the Odo Asimawu Canal drainage channel, thereby impeding the flow of storm water.
The Church also built its toilets on the canal, thereby discharging all its human waste into the canal.
In order prevent an outbreak of epidemic, the state government had to seal the entire Church premises.
