This was made known by the Ogun state Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Tunji Odunlami, while speaking in the state’s capital, Abeokuta.
According to him, the warning became necessary as the need to prevent environmental pollution in the state became an integral part of the current Ogun State Abiodun led administration.
“It is illegal to operate poultry, piggery and others in residential areas. Human beings and animals cannot reside in the same area. Henceforth, such facility will be shut; there are areas designated for agricultural purposes which are already indicated in the regional plan of the state,” Odunlami stated.
He further admonishes the state residents to inform the state government should there be any violation of the new rule guiding residential areas in the state.
