Oyo State Government (OYSG) has marked popular gospel musician, Yinka Ayefele’s building, The Music House, for demolition.
The Music House also accommodates a radio station, Fresh FM 105.9, also owned by the musician.
In a demolition notice given to the owners, the government gave them three days to vacate the building and remove the structure or risk it’s removal by the government. Meanwhile, the deadline expires today (Wednesday).
However, in a late Facebook post on Tuesday by its Director of Corporate Affairs and Promotions, David Ajiboye, wrote: “Gov Ajimobi wants to demolish Music House again because (1) The staff canteen in the premises was not approved. (2) The spiral staircase was not in the approved plan. (3) The mast was not in the approved plan (4) The fence was not in the approved plan….and therefore the entire N800 million edifice where almost 150 people make their daily bread have (sic) to go down. You are all invited to the demolition show at the Music House tomorrow”.
Investigation also revealed that a similar notice was issued years ago but the matter was resolved between the agents of government and owners of the structure.
The development is coming at a time the station is extending its frontiers to Abeokuta, the capital of Ogun State.
