Saraki’s family house has been demolished by Kwara State Government In Ilorin, the state capital, on Thursday.
The demolition took place this morning to avoid any complicated issue from Saraki loyalist. Trendz Naija gathered that, some of the people living in the house were allegedly harassed and injured in the process of the demolition.
The Kwara State government had revoked illegally acquired properties by the former governor Saraki with some of the properties marked for demolition.
Abdulrazak Abdulrahman the governor of Kwara state, said that the land was originally meant for government secretariat and parking space for civil service clinic but was unlawfully allocated to a private firm Asa Investments Limited without any record of payment to the state government.
The governor signed a constitutional instrument withdrawing the allocation of plots of land 1, 3 and 5 to the firm, asserting that the said land was unlawfully appropriated contrary to the purpose for which it was meant.
He said, “Hundreds of civil servants still operate from rented apartments at a huge cost to the government.
“The new secretariat, once completed in 2021, will definitely go a long way to end this unhealthy trend as well as provide a more conducive and decent working environment for government workers.”
