Read statement excerpt;
Amosun marks the property of Senator Solomon Olamilekan Adeola’s (YAYI) Ilaro home for demolition
The incumbent governor of Ogun State, Senator Ibikunle Amosun has directed the urban and physical planning ministry of his government to go on a demolishing spree of the properties identified to be properties of Senator Solomon Olamilekan Adeola aka YAYI.
This came after the Ilaro home the YAYI hosted over 200 former Ogun State local government councillors. The ministry officials visited the mansion on the 6th of December,2016 giving the owner a notice of demolition in 3 days.
Other targeted property of YAYI include his Abeokuta GRA residence and few of the residences of his Ogun State political supporters like that of Rt Hon Tunji Egbetokun, former speaker Ogun State House of Assembly.
Reports suggest that the governor is going increasingly impatient and intolerant with the growing popularity of Senator Solomon Olamilekan Adeola aka YAYI coupled with his visible physical appearances in the state.
Efforts to reach the Ogun State born Lagos politician Senator Solomon Olamilekan Adeola or his media adviser Bashorun Kayode Odunaro proved abortive.
It was further gathered that the state government had stationed a bulldozer & excavator less than 1km away to effect the demolition as soon as the 3 day deadline lapses.
Picture of the demolition notice and marked residence is attached.
