Toye Arulogun (Toyin Arulogun), the Oyo State Commissioner for Information, has reacted after Yinka Ayefele called him out in a statement and accused him of being the mastermind behind the demolition of his Music House.
Mr Ayefele’s music house was controversially demolished by the Oyo state government on Sunday. And in an official statement, Yinka alleged that TOYIN ARULOGUN (correct name for Oyo State Commissioner for Information is Toye Arulogun) suggested the demolition.
According to Yinka, Toyin Arulogun was the one who started the demolition case and the one who finished it.
In a telephone interview with Premium Times, Mr Arulogun, however, says he was not responsible for the demolition. Rather, that the action was taken by the Oyo state government and town planning authorities.
“The question is, can I influence the decision of the executive, that of government agencies and that of the state government as a whole?”
Mr Arulogun added that the state government would formally address journalists on its stance on the demolition on Monday.
