IBADAN-SYMPATHISERS in their hundreds were on Sunday held in disbelief as the Oyo State Government made good its plan to demolish an Ibadan-based radio station, Fresh FM owned by veteran musician, Yinka Ayefele.
Sunday Vanguard gathered that The demolition exercise began a few minutes past 6’o clock in the early hours of Sunday.
The state government had, last week, issued a demolition notice to the management of the station which has been a subject of controversy in recent times, but Ayefele said it was politically motivated.
In a swift reaction, Mr. Ayefele took the matter to court, alleging political motivation.
Sunday Vanguard as at the time of filing this report could not reach the state Commissioner for Information, Mr. Toye Arulogun whether the state government authorized the demolition on Sunday morning.
Meanwhile, the management of Fresh FM is yet to react to the demolition exercise as at the time of filing this report.
