The plan and eventual demolition of Fresh FM’s building by Oyo State government have both sparked furious backlash against the government.
Reacting to the vitriol poured at his government for carrying out the demolition exercise of the station owned by gospel singer, Yinka Ayefele, Gov. Abiola Ajimobi in an interview with Yoruba Service of the British Broadcasting Corporation, BBC, after the Eid-el-Kabir prayers in Ibadan on Tuesday, made snide remark about the popular crippled singer, comparing his act to that of armed robbers.
Ajimobi who spoke in Yoruba said, “Just like the house they said we demolished, that man didn’t obey the law.
‘People are now saying because he’s physically challenged. So, if one is physically challenged, he should break the law? “They said he employed people, are armed robbers not employers of labour too? Should we now say because armed robbers employ people, they should continue to rob and terrorise others? We shall pity them, but we have to obey the law.”
