Some who Dont even know any history about saraki and the Ile arugbo in ilorin kwara state will talk as thougg they don't live in in kwara. Let's say assume it's true that the property was truly illegally owned which I believe that to be the case, should the govt not take it back?

None of the Saraki family stays in ile arugbo, rather it's a slavery and poverty promotion camp where aged people from Ilorin are treated with disdain. @RealAARahman has done well by ending the years of mental and physical slavery meted on our people. pic.twitter.com/FYvCttGtp6
