The Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi has said it will now pardon Yinka Ayefele because of his appeal and not because he is physically challenged.
According to the governor, being physically challenged doesn’t give anyone the right to break the law.
He said this while reacting to the backlash he got for demolishing Ayefele’s Music House worth N800m.
In an interview with BBC, he said: “Ayefele didn’t obey the law. People are saying he should be pardoned because he is physically challenged.
“So, does being physically challenged give one the right to break the law? They said he employed people, but even thieves employ people. Should we say a thief should continue stealing because he employed people?
“And we warned him (Ayefele) about the building. Now that he has appealed, we will pardon him, but we must always obey the law.”
