Metro Kwara govt demolishes Saraki’s ‘political home’ - The Cable


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

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