PANDEF condemns invasion of Chief Clark’s residence

…Gives FG 48hours ultimatum to explain

By Enaibo Asiayei

PAN Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF) has expressed its total condemnation of “the action of heavily armed men of the Nigerian Police Force’s unwarranted invasion and takeover of the Abuja residence of national elderstateman, Chief Edwin Clark, OFR, CON, on Tuesday, September 4, 2018, under the unfounded allegation of stockpiling of weapons from the Niger Delta.”

Going further in a statement signed by Dr. Alfred Mulade, its national secretary, PANDEF disclosed that Chief Clark’s residence “was thoroughly raided and searched, room by room and item by item,  for over two hours,  in a manner most demeaning  and embarrassing of the person of this  national icon who was physically present at the time of this invasion.”

PANDEF condemned what it described as “very barbaric act which is tantamount to state terrorism and total disregard  for his fundamental human rights and complete  disregard for established  traditional respect for age and national  service.”

Concluding PANDEF called on “the Federal Government  to thoroughly investigate and offer  explaination,  within  the next  48 hours, this barbaric action against one of the fathers of this nation, in such a brazing manner.”
