Over two hundred persons have been arrested last Saturday during the statewide compulsory monthly sanitation and tried for defaulting Anambra state environmental laws currently at the Magistrate Court, Awka and other mobile courts in Awka. Those found guilty were either fined or compelled to perform one community service or both.
August monthly sanitation exercise was remarkable as enforcement was intensified in many parts of the state and major markets, parks and shopping malls complied to the directive.
Pedestrians who defied the compliances were forced to trek distances to beat the enforcement of sanitation within the hours of the exercise while some others were apprehended to face the full wrath of the law.
Anambra state Commissioner for Environment, Engineer Felix Odimegwu said the season of neglecting the environment and waiting for the government are gone as every onye Anambra and visitor will be held accountable for their environment.
