Hours after demolishing a part of the Music House which houses popular Ibadan radio station, Fresh FM 105.9 the Oyo state Ministry of Information has justified their action even in the face of public rage.
On its Facebook page Sunday evening, the ministry listed six questions owner of the building, Yinka Ayefele, should answer just as members of the public continue to show him support and sympathy.
The ministry also pointed out that only the extension of the building was demolished.
Thousands of Ibadan residents trooped to the site at Challenge upon hearing the news of the demolition on Sunday. Condemnation has continued to greet the government’s action.
But the Ministry of Information has questions for those knocking the government.
The Facebook post reads:
Did Ayefele tell you that he received the first letter on 14th June, 2017?
Did Ayefele tell you that they served him letters four times and he did not respond?
Did Ayefele tell you that they gave him more than 7days ultimatum according to the laws of demolition?
Did Ayefele tell you that he was contacted by the ministry before demolition?
Did Ayefele tell you that bulldozer was at the Music House for three days before demolition?
Did Ayefele tell you that only the extension was demolished and the building still stands?
