It is now mandatory for tenement/owners and occupiers to landscape and beautify the perimeter areas of their properties. A violation of this would attract N250, 000 or the amount the state would incur if it decides to carry out the beautification, or six months imprisonment or other non-custodian sentences…also anyone caught felling trees in the state or trimming them without permission would be fined a minimum of N50, 000 or sent to one year imprisonment.
It is also an offence to walk on lawns and gardens. Urinating, defecating in any  of the parks, gardens and open spaces; loitering or soliciting for illegal purposes, smoking and dumping refuse among others in the parks are also offences.”

 And now that Lagos State government wants to beautify the state and make it look like Paris, new laws have been established. An agency has also been set up – Lagos Parks & Gardens (LASPRAK), whose mandate is to ensure the sustainability of the environment and further enhance the aesthetics of the state.

This is actually a good way to make Lagosians behave but its weird when flowers are involved....hmmmm...this is a serious matter i must say, by the way...operation plant flowers nowwwwww
