The Oyo State Government on Sunday demolished the Music House which housed Fresh FM, a radio station, as well as music studios that belong to artiste, Yinka Ayefele, drawing protest from fans and stakeholders in the entertainment industry.
The demolition was carried out despite a court injunction restraining the government from embarking on the exercise.
The government had last week served a demolition notice on the building owner, explaining that the building contravened physical planning law, adding that the demolition would be carried out after three days of receiving the notice.
According to Ayefele, the building, located in the Challenge area of Ibadan, is valued at over N800m.
The order expired on Wednesday, but while many waited for the government’s next action, the Director of Yinka Ayefele Nigeria Limited, Mr David Ajiboye, told journalists on Thursday that Ayefele had obtained a court injunction, restraining the government from carrying out the demolition.
