Video: Kwara Government Demolishes Saraki’s Family House In Ilorin

The Kwara State government on Thursday, demolished Bukola Saraki’s family property popularly known as Ile Arugbo (old people’s home) in Ilorin.

It was gathered that the building was demolished in the early hours of the day after security operatives dispersed protesters, including aged women within the complex.

Report gathered also reveals the structure was used as a venue for political meetings when the Saraki family held sway over Kwara Government.

It was alleged that some of the people residing in the house were harassed and injured in the process of evacuating them.
It would be recall that Kwara State governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, had earlier in December, 2019 announced his decision to revoke the late Olusola Saraki’s property owing to alleged illegality in its acquisition.

He said the land was originally designated for the construction of a secretariat and parking lot of the civil service clinic.
But former senate president, Bukola Saraki countered this statement, saying his late father lawfully acquired the land from the state government.
