would you sue for generator noise?

Would you sue someone for generator noise? Electric generator use is quite ubiquitous in Nigeria due to instability of power supply. Noise disturbance on the other hand, as lawyers would know, is an actionable tort.

Why should I sue when there's no power supply like other African countries. If we have constant power supply I think it would be foolish to use generator and then I can sue.

The truth is that no business, hospital, etc in Nigeria can survive without generator. Our leaders have failed us on daily basis. If everyone uses Mikano soundproof generator, who will sue the other? If gaint generators are mounted in commercial cities, or politicans share their light with others, who would sue the other?

Should the noise be so that it affects my health or the well being of my household and all moral suasion has failed, I will sue
