As kidnapping continues to thrive in the Nigeria’s South east and South south, , unknown gunmen Wednesday kidnapped Ebikeme Clark, the son of elder statesman and Ijaw national leader, Edwin Clark.
The incident reportedly occurred at Kiagbodo in Burutu local government area of Delta State.
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.
The state police command has stepped up efforts to trace the suspected kidnappers and location where they are holding their victim.
The incident, it was gathered, is already generating tension in Kiagbodo.
Ebikeme, who is politically inclined just like his father, contested and lost the last elections to represent Burutu Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives.
The elder Clark is currently attending the National Conference as a delegate from Delta State.
