NESREA Drags Globacom Ltd and MD, Mike Adenuga (Jnr) to Court

The National Environmental Standards and Regulations Enforcement Agency, (NESREA), has initiated a criminal proceeding against Globacom Ltd and its Managing Director, Mike Adenuga (Jnr) for environmental violations.

The Agency via their twitter account noted that “Globacom is constructing and operating telecom masts without conducting site specific environmental audit.”

This is “in violation of Section 5 (2) of the National Environmental (Standards for Telecommunication and Broadcast Facilities) Regulations 2011”, NESREA emphasised.

The Regulation makes it mandatory for telecom operators to conduct site specific Environmental Audit of all base transceiver stations in the country.
