THE massive structure where hundreds of people were held and apparently tortured in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, will be demolished, Governor Seyi Makinde has directed.
The governor gave the order on Tuesday, adding that operators of the illegal facility located in the Ojoo area of the capital city will be prosecuted.
