E.K. Clark’s Son: Police Confirm Arrest of One Suspect, Say No Contact Yet with Kidnappers

LAGOS APRIL 4TH (URHOBOTODAY)-The Delta State Police Command yesterday said it was yet to make any contact with the abductors of Chief Ebikeme Clark, son of Ijaw national leader and South- South representative at the ongoing National Conference, Chief Edwin Kiagbodo Clark.
The command’s spokesperson, DSP Celestina Kalu said the police had swung into action since the incident happened, saying one suspect had been arrested and the kidnappers’ operational vehicle had been recovered by the police.

Ebikeme, the second son of Clark, was on Wednesday kidnapped by heavily armed gunmen at the site of the proposed Chief E. K. Clark University of Technology, Kiagbodo, in Burutu Local Government Area of Delta State.
Kalu said the police were already hunting for the hoodlums responsible for the incident, adding that they were combing everywhere to ensure the freedom of the victim.
“We are yet to make any contact with the abductors, but one person has been arrested in connection with the incident as at now. I want to assure you that the police are on top of the situation. We will apprehend the culprits soon,” she said.
The spokesperson added that: “Police are doing something and we are working, trying to rescue the boy. We know they must have kept him in the bush or in a house. So, if there’s any suspicious movement, they should report to security operatives. As for hunters who operate in the bush, in case they see anything, they should come and tell us.”
