Security agencies have taken over Pa Edwin Clark’s Abuja residence for unknown reasons.

According to Pereotubo Oweilaemi, a lawyer and President of the Ijaw Youth Council (JYC), who confirmed the development to SaharaReporters, the development is proof "Nigeria is gradually descending into a full-blown anarchy".

"This is dangerous for our democracy. Nigeria is heading to the cliff," Oweilaemi said.

"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 dissenting voice. Mr. President should accept that our democracy cannot exist without opposition elements to his government. Chief Clarke is an elder statesman; his views on national issues need to be appreciated by the government of the day instead of witch-hunting him."
