Police officers allegedly from a unit called the Inspector General of Police’s Special Tactical Squad, were said to have invaded the home of elder statesman, Edwin Clark on Tuesday, with a warrant to search for weapons. According to Mr Clark, while recounting the incidence said  “At about 12:30 pm when they came to me that policemen were waiting for me, I asked, what for? They said they had a warrant to search my house. I asked them to come in.

“Some were outside and I learned they came with two vans.

“I asked them, do you know me? I am an old man going to 92, I have been a Federal Minister of Information, been a senator and you think that I’m piling weapons?

“I told them to go ahead with their search. They searched all the rooms but found nothing. They wrote their report and asked three of my people to sign and they left.”

Although, the IGP Idris Ibrahim has apologised to Clark over the Tuesday’s raid of his Abuja home, Nigerians have continued to drop their two cents on the matter.


Many lambasted the present administration and the IGP for always ‘feigning’ ignorance whenever something they should have a grip on, occurs. According to them, someone gives these orders, saying it only shows leadership failure when top government officials deny having any knowledge about something that they clearly should.
