Gunmen yesterday struck at Kiagbodo in Burutu Local Government Area of Delta State, seizing and taking away Ebikeme Clark, son of elder statesman and Ijaw national leader, Chief Edwin Clark.
A top police source in Delta, who confirmed the kidnap, said Ebikeme’s abductors emerged from the water in the evening and whisked away their victim to an unknown destination.
Men of Delta State police command, the source added, have stepped up efforts to trace the suspected kidnappers and locate where they are holding their victim.
The incident, Daily Sun gathered, is already generating tension in Kiagbodo. Ebikeme, it would be recalled, contested the last elections to represent Burutu Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives.
