Fresh FM, a radio station owned by Veteran & physically challenged musician, Yinka Ayefele has been demolished despite the pending hearing of the hearing of the exparte motion scheduled for tomorrow, Monday. The demolition exercise started a few minutes past 6’o clock in the early hours of Sunday, while many were either heading to church or still waking up to the day.

News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported that the Oyo state government had marked the structure located on the Challenge-Toll Gate road for demolition for allegedly contravening the state’s planning laws.
However, Yinka Ayefele’s counsel, Olayinka Bolanle, had filed an exparte motion before the court, seeking for an order of the court restraining the state government from demolishing the property pending the determination of the suit.

Judge, I. Yerima, according to a report obtained from Premium Times, had ordered the claimant to ensure service of the court process on the respondent and adjourned the case till Monday for the hearing of the exparte motion.
David Ajiboye, the media aide to popular Juju musician, Yinka Ayefele, while addressing journalists in Ibadan on Friday, explained that the studio is was targeted because Ayefele had through his music chided the government and was not on the side of the government’s team of supporters.

Daily post stated Ajiboye’s report: “We don’t see it as a threat; instead we see it as a challenge because the planned demolition of the music house is politically motivated.

“When the governor visited the studio in 2016, he said people told him to demolish the building because Ayefele was not in his camp. The building was approved in June 2008 as a business premise; that is over 10 years ago,” he said.
He also quoted verbatim the statement made by Ajimobi when he visited the studio in October 2016: “I want to use this opportunity to thank God for the ability to be here because when we contested the first time and won, a lot of people came to meet me to destroy the music house because Ayefele is not for us and he is always using songs to insult us. But I didn’t see any reason why I should demolish it because I felt if Ayefele is not for us now, he may be for us later.

David Ajiboye, the media aide to popular Juju musician, Yinka Ayefele, has said that the planned demolition of the edifice which houses his principal’s radio station, Fresh FM, and music studio in Oyo state was politically motivated.
Ajibola stated this while addressing journalists in Ibadan on Friday.

Earlier this week, it was reported that the property owned by Ayefele, which is estimated at over N800m was going to be demolished by the Oyo State government. 

However Ajibola said: “We don’t see it as a threat; instead we see it as a challenge because the planned demolition of the music house is politically motivated.

“When the governor visited the studio in 2016, he said people told him to demolish the building because Ayefele was not in his camp. The building was approved in June 2008 as a business premise; that is over 10 years ago,” he said.
He also quoted verbatim the statement made by Ajimobi when he visited the studio in October 2016: “I want to use this opportunity to thank God for the ability to be here because when we contested the first time and won, a lot of people came to meet me to destroy the music house because Ayefele is not for us and he is always using songs to insult us. But I didn’t see any reason why I should demolish it because I felt if Ayefele is not for us now, he may be for us later.

“I am happy today that Ayefele is beside me now and I pray that the business will keep flourishing and this is the best studio I have seen in Oyo State.”
