I have forgiven those who raided my home – Edwin Clark

Edwin Clark reacts to police invasion, threatens legal action

Elder statesman, Chief Edwin Clark has revealed that he has forgiven those who ordered the raid on his Abuja home.

Recall that few days ago, some police officers raided his home after they were tipped off that he had weapons stored in the house. However, the information which they got from a man who claimed to have been told by a taxi driver was wrong.

Speaking during Senator Shehu Sani’s visit to his house, Edwin Clark said,

“I have forgotten all that since the Inspector General has apologised to me through a very powerful delegation; I have forgiven them in the interest of Nigeria.

“If I do not, there are people who are very willing to cause trouble and I do not want that to be done in my name.

“I have also appealed to my youths, my children at home who gathered at Yenagoa in Bayelsa, who were very upset to be peaceful.

“coming to search my house was not a problem, but if it was not properly planned, or with an intention, just to embarrass me and the government then there is a concern.

“Whatever you do, if it fails, it affects the government of President Buhari, if it succeeds perhaps it will go on,” he said.

Clark wondered why anyone would think that a 91-year old man, who had been fighting for peace in the country and had directed youths to lay down arms, would stockpile arms.

“So today at 91, I should be gathering arms in my house,” he added.
