The radio station, owned by popular musician Yinka Ayefele, was attacked during a live broadcast on Sunday morning, April 10.

A three man gang had stormed the station during a live broadcast and dispossessed staff on duty of cash, FM Radio transmitter, laptops, expensive mobile phones and other personal effects at gunpoint.
