The Kwara State government has demolished a public library named in honour of the late Olusola Saraki, the father of a former Senate president, Bukola Saraki.
The library, located in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital, was demolished on Tuesday reportedly on the orders of the state governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq.
The popular library was pulled down by state officials for yet-to-be-disclosed reasons.
The younger Saraki, also a former governor of the state, reacted to the demolition, noting his displeasure over the destruction of the edifice.
“Wow! I just got the news that the major official assignment carried out by the governor of my state, Kwara, today, is the demolition of an old public library named after my late dad, Dr. Olusola Saraki.”
“May Almighty Allah continue to retain a place for Oloye in Aljannah Firdaus,” Saraki wrote on his Twitter handle.
