A-R-R-E-S-T-E-D!!! Kidnappers Of Edwin Clarks's Son, Ebikeme Arrested [PHOTOS]

Delta State Commissioner of Police Mr. Ikechukwu Aduba, yesterday, April 7, 2014 paraded the suspected kidnappers of Chief E. K. Clark’s son, Mr. Ebikeme Clark at the state police headquarters, Asaba.

He said the command was seriously worried over the whereabouts of some members of the kidnap gang that carried out the operation, which he described as “extremely dangerous.”

According to him:
“Other gang members still at large include Timi, Abel, Ndamaw, and Jacob.

“The suspects further confessed to being behind the kidnapping of one Madam Rose at Udu Road, Warri, from whose family they collected a ransom of N1.8 million.

“We want to re iterate that these gang members are extremely dangerous, ruthless schemers and blood tasty, hence we enjoin the good people of Delta State to as quickly as possible alert the police command through any of our distress call numbers: 08036684974, 08125273010 and 08075390753 or alert any of the security agencies in the state with any useful information that will lead to the arrest of the wanted suspects.

“Mouth watering rewards await any public-spirited individual that may come up with useful and genuine tips. We want to extend our gratitude to Ijaw youths and members of the family of the kidnapped victim.”
State Police Command’s spokesperson, Celestina Kalu, who paraded the suspects on behalf of the CP, said one of the suspects, Joshua Ogofa, is the master mind.

He is a native of Kalafigbene in Bomadi council, he was said to be the driver of an ex militant warlord and provided the AK-47 rifle used for the operation.

Another is David Emevor, a native of Kiagbodo. He was said to have plotted the kidnapping scheme as an insider. Bosin Kevwe, a native of Aladja, allegedly provided the Audi 80 saloon car used for the operation.

Sylvester Dio, a native of Isaba in Ogbe Ijaw, Warri South West council, was said to have provided the speed boat. Pius Arhavwaren, a native of Olota in Ughelli South council, provided the motorcycles used for the operation and Prince Meslore, a native of Esama in Bomadi council.

Yesterday, Ebikeme Clark, son of Ijaw national leader, Chief Edwin Clark, who was kidnapped last Wednesday, has regained his freedom from hostage.

Narrating how his freedom came about, Ebi told NE sources in Warri on Sunday that it took the intervention of ex-militant leader of MEND, Tompolo and one Chief Boro Opudu, for the kidnappers to release him.

“They were ordered by their leader, Chief Tompolo to free me and one Chief Boro Opudu. I was freed 12 mid night today (Sunday). No ransom was paid. They have people they listen to or they lose their lives. I can’t give you full details now" [If you missed it, read it HERE]

This statement suggests that Mr. Ekpemupolo, a.k.a. Tompolo, the ex-militant leader of MEND, is the leader of the kidnap syndicate.

In reaction to this claim, the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) declared that last week’s kidnap of Ebikeme Clark, the son of Chief E.K Clark, was actually ‘a clever orchestrated fraud’ masterminded by the “victim,” whom it says stage-managed his own abduction.

But how sincere is MEND, as the police investigations reveal that one of the suspects is actually the driver of an ex militant warlord and also the provider of the AK-47 rifle used for the operation.
