Popular musician and chief executive officer of Fresh FM, 109.5, Yinka Ayefele, has dragged the Oyo State government to court over the planned demolition of his Music House, the building which houses the radio station. The state government had marked the structure located on the Challenge-Lagos bye-pass for demolition for allegedly contravening the state’s planning laws.
But Ayefele, in a statement made available to journalists, said the demolition notice was a witch-hunt.
Yesterday, he approached an Oyo State High Court sitting in Ibadan to stop the planned demolition. His counsel, Mr Olayinka Bolanle, in an ex-parte motion filed before the court, sought for an order of the court, restraining the government from demolishing the property pending the determination of the suit. Justice I Yerima, however, ordered the claimant to ensure service of the court process on the respondent and adjourned the case till Monday, August 20, 2019 for the hearing of the ex-parte motion. Bolanle also stated that due process was followed in the construction of the structure while relevant approvals were obtained from the state’s departments and agencies associated with land and housing.
