The Kwara State Government has demolished Dr Bukola Saraki’s family property popularly known as Ile Arugbo (old people’s home) in Ilorin, the State capital.
The property was demolished early on Thursday morning, January 2, 2020, after Police dispersed protesters, including old women.
Policemen, numbering about 50 were said to have gone to enforce the action at about 3:00 am but were initially resisted by some of the old women.
The Security Agents later returned at 4:00 am when the structure was eventually pulled down.
The structure was used as a venue for political meetings when the Saraki family held sway over Kwara Government.
Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, had earlier in December 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.
