Gospel singer, Yinka Ayefele, is currently recuperating in a hospital in Ekiti state following an altercation with hoodlums in Akure, Ondo state.
Ayefele who was invited by the Ekiti State government to perform at the World Teachers Day organized by the state government, was hit with a plank during the incident.
According to his Publicist, David Ajiboye, the singer was attacked on Saturday at the outskirts of Akure by ‘Area boys’.
His publicist said, “Yinka Ayefele (MON) was attacked by hoodlums on the outskirt of Akure on Saturday 3rd October, 2015 during the burial party of Madam Ebunoluwa Lydia Odumakinde where he was contracted to perform with his band members.
“The hoodlums, after collecting N200, 000 from the artiste as “settlement” later demanded for a sum of N500,000 which did not go down well with Ayefele and in the process of the argument, he was hit on the chest by a plank which was thrown at him.”
His publicist further revealed that though members of his band escaped unhurt, Ayefele’s Ford Explorer 2015 model was vandalized and his recently acquired N150 million musical equipment was not spared.
