Demolishing the opposition

Oyo state government demolished N800 million naira Fresh FM radio station.

What happened?

The Oyo state government had, last week, issued a demolition notice to the management of the Fresh FM radio, but Mr. Yinka Ayefele insisted that the notice was politically motivated, and then took the matter to court.

However, before the court could rule on the matter, the state government moved ahead to demolish the radio station worth over N800 million Naira.

Should I be concerned?

Well, our democracy has been under siege by power brokers seeking to consolidate power and remain in office. According to reports, Fresh FM was a constant vocal opposition to the Oyo state governor in particular, and it seems as though the demolition was a silencing affair.

The danger here, is that court orders trampled upon by the government continues to inform the public that they are still powerless against any form of oppression.Ā
