Breaking: Security operatives lay siege to Edwin Clark’s Abuja residence

…As IYC tell Buhari to call his goons to order 

The Police on Tuesday raided the Abuja residence of former Federal Commissioner for Information and South-South Leader, Chief Edwin Clark.

Police men, who searched all the rooms of the Elder Statesman, alleged that they were in the house to search for arms which they accused him of keeping.

The Policemen who arrived the Asokoro residence of Chief Clark at 1.30pm, left the premises 2.30pm.

They did not find any incriminating evidence or ammunition in the house. According to the Policemen, they stormed the house on the orders of the Inspector- General of Police, Ibrahim Idris.

Reacting to the development, Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) President, Barrister Pereotubo Oweilaemi, said: “Nigeria is gradually descending into a fully blown anarchy. This is dangerous for our democracy. Nigeria is heading to the cliff.

“Relevant stakeholders need to rise in defence of our hard earned democracy. President Buhari should call his overbearing security agencies to order before they plunge the country into an unmitigated crisis.

“There can be no democracy where there is no dissent voice. Mr. President should accept that our democracy cannot exist without opposition elements to his government.

“Chief Clarke who is a elder statesman, his views on national issues needs to be appreciated by the government of the day instead of being witch hunted.”

Meanwhile, speaking with Gbaramatu Voice on the issue, Honourable Ebikeme Clark, son of Chief Clark, said that the invaders excuse for the raid was that they were looking for arms allegedly stockpiled in the residence but ended up finding nothing incriminating.
