Yinka Ayefele’s Ibadan Mansion to be Demolished
Sources say that on Friday, October 5, 2012 Ayefele, a physically-challenged but bestselling musician-performer learnt that the building (located on Falana Road, a few metres after Efunsetan round-about) had been marked for demolition.
According to reports, the Oyo State government is demolishing the mansion to give way for an 8-lane road being proposed by the state government.
We’re told Ayefele’s mansion contains a well equipped, standard audio and visual studio, two multi-purpose halls, an internet radio station (www.ayefelefreshfm.mobi) and several other offices. There are over 50 employees working there.
Questions are however arising; Did Ayefele observe the town planning rules? Did he obtain a certificate of occupancy before he commenced construction? Most importantly, will he receive compensation from the State government?
