PDP Condemns Demolition Of Ayefele’s Studio

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday condemned the demolition of a building belonging to musical icon, Yinka Aiyefele, in Ibadan, allegedly by agents of the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led Oyo state government.

The PDP described the demolishing of the building, said to be worth N800 million and which houses Aiyefele’s Flash FM and his recording studio, in spite of a court order, as horrifying and wicked.

The PDP noted that “Aiyefele’s building was demolished for allegedly singing songs considered to be against the interest of the APC, even when our Constitution allows all citizens right to free speech, freedom of opinion and association within the ambit of the law,” adding that “The current clampdown on the media is now being extended to other public opinion moulders, including musicians and perhaps actors.”
