Kwara State Government Demolishes Saraki’s Political Home

The government of Kwara state has demolished the Sarakis’ political home known as ‘Ile Arúgbó’ in Ilorin.

The building was demolished early Thursday morning after security operatives dispersed protesters, including aged women within the complex.

The state government had fixed midnight for the demolition exercise to avoid a clash with Saraki’s loyalists who had been keeping vigil in the area.

The state governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, 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 that it was unlawfully allocated to a private firm — Asa Investments Limited — without any record of payment to the state government.

from the cable..

    1. I hope with this demolition, he can do something tangible for his people, because he is just using this demolition to score political points.
      He should bear in mind that power rotates,same as positions.

  2. This thing called power ehn...

  3. That's the end result of greed and embezzlement.

    A land that was earmarked for the development of the state, one man just because he can, procured it and converted into private property.

    I did my NYSC in Ilorin,Kwara state and believe me the Sarakis have/owned the choicest property/land in the state as in massive landed property.

    I must say, 99.9% of the politicians are as guilty as the Sarakis!
    Always being lead by greed and insatiable appetite for acquiring property.

  4. Is this governance or vindictive action. Absolute power corrupt absolutely. It is Saraki today,tomorrow it can be anybody. The governor should also focus on providing good governance.

  5. They better build the secretariat there after demolishing it.

  6. This man and Ihedioha are probably cut from the same cloth

  7. same thing will happen in Lagos when the time comes

  8. This life...
    Here today gone tomorrow, smh.
    No one knows tomorrow

  9. Can’t feel sorry for the Sarakis.

  10. They just want to render d sarakis politically useless

  11. I hate the Sarakis, always have and always will for how they have destroyed kwara but I don't believe this was necessary. There seems to be alot of vindictive politicians in office today starting from Buhari. One wonders, if the sole purpose of the seeking elective office is to settle old scores. This Governor should focus on moving Kwara forward from the stagnancy imposed on the state since 1999 not doing anyhow.
