Battered BeatFM staff Adewunmi Oyekanmi releases official statement

My name is Adewunmi Oyekanmi, news editor with the Beat
99.9 Fm. An incident occurred at my work place within the early
hours of the 8th of Sep 2011 between myself and another member of
staff which has been blown out of proportion in the media. (If you missed it, read it HERE)

I have been wrongfully quoted in various blogs and
magazines, but this will be my first official statement and the last, so please
disregard anything you might have seen, heard or read…continue


The incident in question has been dealt with to my
satisfaction by the Management of Megalectrics, operators of The Beat 99.9 Fm,
in a swift and conclusive manner.
The member of staff (Mr Olisa Adibua) with whom I had the
altercation with, has duly apologized most sincerely and I have accepted, based
on the fact that since I started working at the station, my relationship with
the said party has always been cordial and friendly.
In reference to a purported conversation between myself and
an undercover reporter, I’d like to state categorically that I have never had a
phone conversation or granted any interview to any media or reporter.
What transpired was an internal matter which was leaked
into the public domain to create division within our corporate entity. I refuse
to be used as a pawn or be labelled ‘the voiceless or oppressed’.
Megalectrics, the operators of the beat 99.9fm employed me
in the capacity of news editor in July 2010, and ever since I have had no cause
to complain about the working environment, my colleagues or superiors.
We operate an open system where everyone is free to speak
their minds, regardless of rank of hierarchy.
Once again, I’d like to reiterate that the matter has been
resolved and the member of staff has apologized for the altercation we
had.
In conclusion, I would like this issue to be extinguished
so I can get back to my normal every day life, as the recent publications and
rumors circulating have put a strain on my family and private life.
I would like to thank the management and staff of
Megalectrics for the swift and decisive response to the matter. I would also
like to thank everyone who showed concern. I’d like to reassure you that I am
okay and in good health as is confirmed by my attached photo.
These are my final words on the subject.
Thank you very much and God bless.

If you live in Nigeria, you can not be surprised by this
statement. That’s how we roll in this country. But then it’s one thing to be a
victim, it’s another thing to choose to be a victim. On to the the next one I
guess! Infact this man is the highest goathead i have ever seen….
