– Oyo state governor, Abiola Ajimobi, has said Ayefele’s disability does not make him above the law
– Ajimobi has blamed those calling him out for the demolition as some of the problems Nigeria has
– Music House, which housed Yinka Ayefele’s Fresh FM, was demolished on Sunday, August 19
Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo state has berated popular musician and owner of Fresh FM, Yinka Ayefele, for flouting the laws in the construction of his Music House, which was demolished by the state government on Sunday, August 19.
The governor in an interview with BBC Yoruba, said the excuses people are making for Ayefele will not stand in the face of the position of the law.
He said the facts that the musician has bad legs (physically handicapped) and is an employer of labour does not mean he should break the law.
Ajimobi said: “So also the house they said we demolished. The man did not obey the law. Some are now saying because he has bad legs.
“So if somebody has bag legs he should be violating the law?
“They said he employed people. Do armed robbers not employ people?
“Do we say because armed robbers have employees they should keep stealing?
“And we told them, that road. But he has spoken, we will pity them.
“But we have to obey the law.”
TRACK NEWS previously reported that the Oyo state government on Monday said that due process was followed in the demolition of the Music House belonging to the popular musician, Yinka Ayefele.
It also said that no court order restrained it from carrying out its statutory role in the public interest.
Waheed Gbadamosi, the Special Adviser to Gov. Abiola Ajimobi on Physical Planning and Development Control, claimed at a press conference in Ibadan that government gave ample opportunity for Music House to regularise its building plan.
