Yinka Ayefele, has released an official statement following the demolition of his music house/radio station yesterday in Ibadan, Oyo State.
Yinka Ayefele who alleged that one TOYIN ARULOGUN suggested the demolition, told fans of his radio station to desist from damaging public property out of anger. He wrote;
“I greet the entire Fresh Fm fans both home and abroad.I wish to extend my heartfelt gratitude for this opportunity and experience.As we all know,Fresh Fm is not an Ayefele owned company but a company owned by the general public.I ll like to plead with everyone not to cause any casualty especially on the Ajumose bus packed around Music House.

Where they began and where they are at the moment.Special thanks to TOYIN ARULOGUN for he was the one who suggested the demolition. And also the Nigeria Broadcasting corporation for their support.

Recall that we reported yesterday that demolition of Yinka Ayefele’s music house, led to a new spate of controversy about APC on social media as residents of Oyo State and Nigerians in general, have expressed their disappointment over the incident.
Fans of Yinka Ayefele’s music house/radio station, recalled how Governor Abiola Ajimobi was once interviewed by the radio station after he won his second term. While some alleged that this is a deliberate attack on the press, others stated that demolition was politically motivated. The incident also reportedly led to pulling down of APC billboards in the state.
