Yinka Ayefele’s popular structure, The Music House, where Fresh FM 105.9, one of Ibadan’s private  radio stations is located, has been marked for demolition.

The demolition notice pasted on the structure at Lagos Bye Pass, Challenge, Ibadan, on the orders of the Oyo State Government gave the owners of the building three days to vacate the building and remove the structure or risk it’s removal by the government. The deadline expires on Wednesday, 15th August.

The radio station’s Director of Corporate Affairs and Promotions, David Ajiboye wrote on Facebook late  on Tuesday that the demolition notice was issued 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” Ajiboye also wrote that “….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”.

A similar notice was issued in October 2012 but the matter was resolved between the agents of government and the owners of the structure.

Efforts to get the CEO, Dr. Yinka Ayefele and David Ajiboye for comments proved futile as neither of them answered calls to their phone as at the time of filing this report.

  1. There’s nothing to be sentimental about in the issue. Was there a promise to remove the offensive parts of the structure in 2012? If so why did the owner failed to do do? If Nigeria must move forward there’s the need for all of us to obey rules and regulations to avoid chaotic situations.
    And by the way Ajiboye may not be saying the whole truth about the issue.
