The Kwara State House of Assembly has ordered the seizure of a property allegedly acquired by the former Senate President, Bukola Saraki as there was no evidence of payment.

According to the State’s legislative arm, the property which is Alimi Chalet and an expanse of land, popularly called ‘Ile Arugbo’ is owned by the state government.

Special Assistant to the Speaker of the Assembly, Ibrahim Sheriff,  said the allocation of the property to Saraki by the last administration was a “violent violation” of the Kwara State Pension Law 2010, as amended.

According to the Sheriff in a statement,  the purported sale of the Alimi Chalet did not conform to the Kwara State former Governors’ Pension Law 2010, as amended, which incidentally was the brainchild of Saraki.

He added that there was no record anywhere that showed that Saraki paid to have the property transferred to him. “The transfer only fits into what the late Fela Anikulapo called ‘paddy-paddy’ arrangement,” he said.
