30 November 2012, 14:07

Kwara - The  Kwara Government on Friday in Ilorin  donated N100 000 to Baba Podo,  a fire victim in the state.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Podo’s residence  located at  Okaka Ward in Ilorin South Local Government Area was recently gutted by fire.

Musa Abdulahi, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Emergency and Relief Services, presented the cheque on behalf of the state government.
