Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has announced N500m fund to assist all those whose businesses in Ilorin were looted by hoodlums, as parts of the administration’s efforts to bring them back on their feet following the incident.
The governor said this Saturday evening after he visited various shops and scenes that were looted by the hoodlums.
Speaking in an interview with journalists, in Ilorin the governor condemned “the mindless looting” of people’s businesses in the state capital on Friday, insisting that there can be no justification for such criminal behaviour.
During his visit to the Kwara Mall and Agro Mall on Saturday evening, the Governor said the incident may bring businesses to their knees, and cause massive loss of jobs and a surge in poverty rate — implications he said were clearly lost on the “hoodlums”. (Vanguard)
