ND Gist: Oyo Govt Faults Own Lawyer, Admits Bringing Down Fresh FM Building


The Oyo State Government has countered its own layer’s defence that it did not know anything about the demolition of an N800m structure belonging to ace musician, Yinka Ayefele.
After several denials, the government on Monday argued that due process was followed in the demolition of the Music House belonging to the popular musician.
Denying culpability in the demolition, the state government, through its counsel, Mr. Yomi Alliyu, had told Justice Iyabo Yerima of the State High Court, Ring Road, Ibadan, on Monday, that it was preparing to institute a panel of inquiry to unravel the identity of those who razed the N800m edifice.

However, late Monday evening, the Special Adviser to Governor Abiola Ajimobi on Physical Planning and Development Control, Mr. Waheed Gbadamosi, claimed at a press conference in Ibadan that government gave ample opportunity for the Music House to regularise its building plan.
Gbadamosi said that it was established during a visit to the building that it encroached into the sight distance of the Y Junction along Lagelu Estate, stressing that a canteen, toilets, store, and powerhouse, which were not in the plan submitted, were attached to the wall fence.
Gbadamosi said that a letter was sent to Music House on June 29, 2018, to submit a fresh building plan application that will reflect the existing structures on site and regularise the anomalies.
