News FRESH FM: Gov. Ajimobi under fire over demolition of Yinka Ayefele building Published 7 months ago on August 19, 2018 By All Naija Entertainment The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has accused the Governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi of executive rascality over “the unlawful demolition of Fresh FM building owned by Yinka Ayefele, and the forced evictions of residents by the Oyo State government”.DON'T MISS: Download & Install All Naija Entertainment App Into Your Android SERAP, in a statement on Sunday signed by its deputy director, Timothy Adewale, condemned the “gross abuse of powers by the Oyo State government and governor Ajimobi against a radio station simply doing their job.” SERAP insisted that the action was politically-motivated, patently arbitrary and entirely inconsistent with international human rights standards and national laws. The organization said, “the destruction of a radio station on the grounds that the Oyo state government dislikes their work is a textbook case of repression of media freedom and violation of the right to adequate housing. The authorities must immediately stop the demolition, ensure appropriate repairs of the building and adequate compensation, and guarantee of non-repetition. SERAP will challenge this violent and reckless destruction of Ayefele’s Fresh FM in court. “The Oyo State government has not only engaged in forced eviction but also violated the right to adequate housing, the right to freedom of expression and media freedom.

Commission on Human Rights affirmed that forced evictions constitute a gross violation of human rights. “The term “forced eviction” is defined for the purposes of international law as the permanent or temporary removal against their will of individuals, families and/or communities from the homes and/or land which they occupy, without the provision of, and access to, appropriate forms of legal or other protection. “It is important to note that international standards focus on protecting individuals who occupy homes and land and do not depend on any particular form of ownership title to the land or house, nor on the legality of the occupancy.” Subscribe To ANE Talk Trends On Youtube Subscribe To All Naija Entertainment On Youtube Get More Stories Like This On: Facebook: @AllNaijaEntertainment, Twitter: @AllNaijaEntertainment Quick Reach: Our Service Improvement, Advertise With Us, Send Us Enquiries & Press Releases Related Posts:DWAYNE JOHNSON: Complete Biography, History, Family, State Of Origin, Birth And Throwback Photos Of Dwayne JohnsonHow To Become A Succesful Good Fashion Designer, Tailor, Sell Materials, Tools in NigeriaDAGRIN: Complete History, Biography, Family, State Of Origin, Birth And Throwback Photos Of Olaonipekun Oladapo Olaitan (Dagrin)JOEL ANTHONY: Complete Biography, History, Family, State Of Origin, Birth And Throwback Photos Of Joel AnthonyJOB: Academic and Non-Academic Staff Recruitment at Mountain Top UniversityOBA ADEWALE AKANBI: Complete History, Biography And Throwback Photos Of Oba Abdul-Rasheed Adewale Akanbi Oluwo of lwo landLAURENCE ANINI: Full Throwback History And Biography Of Nigeria Number One Terrorist Laurence AniniBREAKING: Okorocha missing as INEC presents Certificates of Return to LawmakersNew Zealand: Many killed in ‘terrorist’ attack on mosques in Christchurch [VIDEO]God has permanently defeated Akpabio – Chris Ekpenyong Ajimobifresh fFresh FMFresh FMYinka Ayefele Advertisement Click to comment Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
