The property with Survey No KWG927 and LAN/G-2071 is situated on Ilofa Road, GRA, Ilorin.

The property is popularly known as 'Ile Arugbo.'

The Assembly made the call after considering the report of its Committee on Land, Housing and Urban Development on the property.

The report was presented by the chairman of the committee, Mr. Felix Awodiji (APC-Ifelodun)

The Speaker, Mr. Danladi Yakubu-Salihu, while reading the resolution of the Assembly, said the property belongs to the state government and should be revoked.

The resolution also called for revocation of the land for development of the state and use for the purpose it was originally meant.
