Crisis looms after demolition of property of Saraki’s father

Fri Jan 3rd, 2020 - Kwara

The opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday condemned what it described as the “unwarranted and vindictive demolition” of a property linked to former Senate President Bukola Saraki.

A bulldozer accompanied by security operatives destroyed Ile Arugbo located at Iloffa Road, Ilorin, the Kwara State capital, midnight yesterday. The property belonged to the late Dr. Olusola Saraki, a Second Republic senator and father of the former senate president.

The development is the latest twist in the political tussle between the Saraki dynasty, which once held sway in the state and the administration of Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq.

“The action of the state government is borne out of hatred and political intolerance, in furtherance of the larger plot by the APC and its administration to intimidate, suppress, hound, crush and silence opposition and dissenting voices in our country, in the bid to foist a siege mentality on the citizenry,” the PDP said.
