”My clients are men of honour that respect rule of law and constituted authority and will have no reason to demolish the said property,” he told the court.

In a related development, former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has condemned the demolition of the multimillion building owned by Yinka Ayefele.

Reacting to the demolition in a message posted on Twitter on Monday, Fani-Kayode said Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi, will pay heavily for the demolition.

He wrote on Twitter; “The Lord is the defender of the defenseless, He is the champion of the weak and He provides for the needy. He raises His standard against the oppressor and He is mighty in battle.

“Ajimobi will pay a heavy price for his sheer wickedness and unrelenting cruelty to Ayefele,” he added.
