Gov Ajimobi Demolishes Fresh FM Ibadan For Criticising His Govt
The Oyo State governor, Isiaka Abiola Ajimobi has ordered the demolition of Fresh FM Radio Station located in Ibadan.
Fresh105.9 FM Ibadan is a brainchild of renowned Entertainer, Yinka Ayefele (MON).
The station was demolished in the early hours of Sunday, August 19.
ElombahNews gathered that the primary reason for the demolition is that the information outlet is known for criticising the Ajimobi-led All Progressives Congress [APC] government.
Ironically, Governor Ajimobi visited Fresh FM in Ibadan few months ago where he was a guest only to come back later and demolish the same radio station.
Meanwhile, the Oyo State Government is yet to proffer reasons for demolishing Fresh FM in Ibadan as the challenge road has recently been fully constructed.
According to an eyewitness, “this is the implication of airing anything against the current government in Nigeria”.
Reacting to the development, an activist and Co-Convener of OurMumuDonDo, Mr. Adeyanju Deji taking to his Twitter handle, lashed out against Governor Ajimobi.
He said that the action is a “deliberate clampdown against the PRESS under this government”.

Another observer, Mr. Olayinka Samuel regretted the “Constituted Authority” of Governor Ajimobi.
He reproduced a video of Ajimobi at the radio station as a guest, blaming the state government for callouness.
