Edwin Clark

Chief Edwin Clark, a former Federal Minister of Information, has condemned the raid on his house by personnel of the Nigeria Police Force.

He also stated that the reason for the search may be as a result of his position on various political issues.

Speaking with newsmen after the incident on Tuesday, Clark, who maintained that it was "ridiculous" for anyone to assume that he is housing ammunition to overthrow the government, expressed his dissatisfaction with the action and hinted at possible legal action.

He said: “I believe [it's] because of the various meetings we’ve been holding [meetings] about the state of the nation. Otherwise, why would they expect me to keep ammunition in my house?

"No sensible man will think that a 91-year-old man in Abuja will be keeping ammunition in his house to fight the government; overthrow the government. This is ridiculous, shameful."

The South-South leader maintained that he would always express his stand on the state of the nation.

Nothing incriminating was found in his house after the search, and the Nigeria Police Force has denied authorising the raid. See Also Breaking News BREAKING: IGP Apologises To Edwin Clark Over 'Unauthorized, Illegal And Unprofessional' Raid Of His House
