Mr. Ebikeme Clark, son of Chief Edwin Clark, who was kidnapped on April 2 in Kiagbodo, Burutu Local Government Area of Delta, has regained freedom.

The Police Public Relations Office (PPRO), Delta command, DSP Celestina Kalu, confirmed this on Sunday in an interview with reporters in Warri.

Kalu said that the victim was released by the Kiagbodo waterside without ransom.

“Clark was released at the early hour of today by his captors and no ransom was paid,’’ she said.

The PPRO said that one suspect apprehended in connection with the crime assisted the police with useful information.

The victim, who narrated his ordeal in the kidnappers’ den to NAN correspondent, said that it was an unpleasant experience.

“I cannot explain how it happened, but it was unpleasant.

“I was released by the grace of God; I was taken to an unknown destination in the creek,” he said.

Clark said that he was released by his captors by midnight on Saturday.

NAN recalled that Clark was whisked away on the fateful day when he was paying the salaries of the employees of Edwin Clark Foundation at about 6.00 pm in Kiagbodo.

Subsequently, the abductors demanded the sum of N60 million from the family to free the victim.
