Clark Condemns Military Raid On Country Home.

Elder statesman and National Leader of the Pan-Niger Delta Forum, Chief Edwin Clark, has condemned the military raid on his country home in the Kiagbodo Local Government Area of Delta State.

A statement he signed recounted how he was inundated with calls informing him of the raid of his country home by military men in search of one Vote, suspected to be linked to the killing of 17 soldiers in Okuama, following a call from a person identified as the Commanding Officer Nigerian Army, Division in Port Harcourt, apologizing on behalf of the Army, for the raid.

The statement said, the military men arrived in five trucks loaded with armed soldiers, numbering between 30 and 40, while at the same time flying drones within the premises, and some of them went to the buildings behind the main house and broke all the doors that were locked, while, others broke into his late brother, Ambassador Akporode Blessing Clark’s house, a man who served this country internationally in various capacities, including as Nigeria’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations and Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and both of them share the same premises. They brought out his son almost naked, who was taking a bath when they stormed the house.

Clark said the incident was “beyond coincidence”, and was a source of concern, recounting a previous raid on his Abuja home on September 4, 2018, while describing the authorization of such raids as “disrespectful and unlawful”, having served the country nearly 70 years in different capacities.
