The Oyo State Government has finally demolished the building housing Fresh FM Ibadan, a private radio station owned by popular Juju musician, Mr. Yinka Ayefele.

The building, named “Music House”, was marked for demolition because some part of it were not approved.

The demolition notice was posted on the structure located along Ibadan-Lagos expressway on Monday on the order of the Oyo State Government.

The notice, according to David Ajiboye, its Director of Corporate Affairs and Promotions, gave the owner of the building three days to vacate the building and remove the structure or risk its removal by the government.

The deadline, it was learnt expired on Wednesday, 15th August 2018.

Ajiboye, who confirmed the development on his Facebook page on Tuesday, added that the demolition notice was issued because “The staff canteen in the premises was not approved”.

The post read further, “The spiral staircase was not in the approved plan. The mast was not in the approved plan.

“The fence was not in the approved plan.

“And therefore the entire N800 million edifice where almost 150 people make their daily bread have to go down. You are all invited to the demolition show at the Music House tomorrow”.

Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon, has broken his record to become the wealthiest person alive, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.

Bezos now has a fortune of US$171.6 billion, surpassing his previous high of $167.7 billion.

His previous record was set in 2018, before his divorce from wife Mackenzie Bezos.

The 56-year-old American internet entrepreneur has gained approximately $56.7 billion this year alone.

Much of Bezo’s wealth comes from Amazon, with the CEO owning roughly 57 million shares of the company.

Despite the global outbreak of COVID-19, Amazon has gained even more business in recent months, as a result of worldwide lockdowns and the growing demand for online shopping.

Following Bezos on Bloomberg’s ranking are Bill Gates (with a net worth of $115 billion), Bernard Arnault ($93 billion), and Mark Zuckerberg ($91.2 billion).
