Saraki, in a statement on Thursday night, thanked the people of Kwara who displayed support for his late father, Dr. Abubakar Olusola Saraki and the family during the unfortunate exercise.
He said that the action of the men and women who defied intimidation by keeping vigil and the house “gave full expression to my belief that what Ile Arugbo represents to all of us is etched in our hearts. It goes beyond the physical structure.”
“Following the development this morning in Ile Arugbo, I want to commend the women and men, old and young, who displayed their affection, love and staunch support for my late father and the family.
