Governor Ajimobi Destroys Ayefele's N800m Music House
According to the Nigerian Tribune, the bulldozer arrived on Sunday at 4:30 am in the premises of the radio station, along with a full white bus of Nigerian army officers and mobile police officers.
Since this was an outstanding issue since last week, staff on duty immediately announced the demolition exercise.
The demolition exercise involved the stairway connecting the entrance to the music hall, the reception, the newsroom, and an office adjacent to the president's office.
The operation, according to informed sources, was intended for total destruction, but the bulldozers operator stopped when his fork was falsified by one of the electrical poles on the adjacent road behind the office, for fear of a electrical shock.
One of the staff, discussing with the Nigerian Tribune on condition of anonymity, said that the staff on duty was unaware of the presence of the demolition team.
Ayefele Speaking: "We only heard of the operation of the bulldozer when we went out to check what was really going on, the bulldozer hit the door, and we realized that they belonged to the state government.
"At this point, we were confused and we are just screaming to alert the other serving staff."
The president of the station, Dr. Yinka Ayefele, MON, who was stunned after being informed and when he came to inspect, could not utter a word. Later, he toured the station to take stock of the station with staff members who were walking one by one.
