The statement released by Yinka Ayefele's publicist,Mr. David Ajiboye says that the Gospel artiste was hit by the thugs, and has been hospitalized following the impact of the injuries he sustained in the attack.

The release added that Ayefele’s Ford Explorer 2015 model was vandalized and his recently acquired N150 million musical equipment was not spared.

According to the statement;

"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.”

The hoodlums vandalised the newly acquired musical equipment and the truck while his new Ford Explorer 2015 model SUV was also vandalised, as well. The band boys escaped unhurt contrary to reports in the media that they were beating."
