Commissioner for Information in Oyo State, Mr. Toyin Arulogun, has spoken on the demolition of Music House, a building owned by popular musician, Yinka Ayefele.
The building owned by Dr Yinka Ayefele and also for radio station, Fresh FM 105.9. It was controversially demolished by the state government on Sunday morning.
Mr Arulogun said that contrary to the allegation by the musician, he was not responsible for the demolition.
He said the action was taken by the state government and town planning authorities in the state.
“The question is, can I influence the decision of the executive, that of government agencies and that of the state government as a whole?” he said in a telephone interview.
He then added that the state government would formally address journalists on its stance on the demolition on Monday.
Earlier, Dr Ayefele pleaded with his fans to keep calm and not resort to violence.
Mr Ayefele spoke on Sunday evening on a programme on the radio station, which commenced online transmission after the demolition.
“Don’t cause trouble. Don’t even touch the caterpillar parked in front of the music house. I beg of you all. The government has done what they deemed fit.”
“Fresh FM continues despite the demolition. So far we don’t do anything against the government laws and we’ve not breached the broadcast regulations. Let God judge.”
