There may be an impending danger and youth restiveness around Isheri area of Lagos State over the recent decision of the Lagos State Sports Commission (LSSC) to close the Community Sports facility (Isheri Mini Stadium) constructed by the Lagos State government.
The lockdown which the commission said was necessary to enable them water the grass has lasted for more than three weeks.
The decision has left many youth in the community who have found a safe haven in the sporting facility frustrated.
Speaking on the issue, a member of the Atlanta 96 gold medal winning team, Dosu Joseph said the decision was an attempt to truncate the sporting career of youths in the area.
The Chairman of Westerlo football academy said the reason given by the LSSC was untenable.
â€œTo close a stadiumÂ for three weeks just because they want to wet its grass is very funny and ridiculous. This is very bad precedence that is being set and which could affect other community sports centre all around Lagos Stateâ€, he said.
He called on Governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode to wade into the situation.
