Gospel singer, Yinka Ayefele, said claim by the Oyo State Government that his radio station building marked for demolition was a death trap causing the deaths of three persons was false.
The singer, who has approached the court seeking an order to stop the government from demolishing the building in a statement he released, accused the Gov. Abiola Ajimobi led-government of reprisal.
He wrote in part: “Tayo Arulogun(the state Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism) said the Music House complex contravenes planning laws and was responsible for three fatal accidents that occurred on the road in the last nine months.
“We want to make it clear that Music House followed due process in the construction of the building and got relevant approvals from state departments and agencies associated with lands and buildings. Saying that Music House complex is responsible for three accidents is just an attempt by the commissioner to run away from his shadow. He has tried in the past to influence a change in our programmes, saying some of our analysts should be replaced. We want the general public to know that Music House has not in any way contravened any building law as the commissioner has mischievously said.”
