Fresh FM, an Ibadan-based radio station in Nigeria owned by veteran musician, Yinka Ayefele, has been demolished.

The demolition exercise began a few minutes past 6’o clock in the early hours of Sunday.

The location of the station has been a subject of controversy in recent times, with the management of the station and the Oyo State Government locked in a war of words. The government had warned that it would take down the building.

Earlier, reports said Mr Ayefele has taken the matter to court, alleging political victimisation.

But on Sunday, the demolition exercise began.

“They have destroyed the building; they have ruined my multi-million naira investment,” he said on telephone Sunday morning.

It is not immediately clear whether the Oyo State Government authorized the demolition Sunday morning.

Efforts to reach the Morohunkola Thomas, an aide to Governor Abiola Ajimobi on political matters, were unsuccessful. Toye Arulogun, the state Commissioner for Information, could also not be immediately reached Sunday morning.

The management of Fresh FM is yet to react to the demolition exercise. Multiple calls placed to Akeem Kareem, a top management staff in the station’s Human Resources department were not attended to on Sunday morning.

The demolition exercise was ongoing as at press time.
