The abducted son of Ijaw leader, Edwin Clark who was kidnapped last Wednesday has been released by his captors.

Delta State Public Relations Officer, DSP Tina Kalu said Ebikeme Clark was released Saturday night.

He was kidnapped at Kiagbodo community in Bomadi by armed men who later demanded a ransom of N50million.

It was not confirmed if Chief Clark, who had threatened war against the kidnappers, paid the ransom.

Counsel to the Chief Clark, Mr. Dockson Bekederemo, told TheNation on phone that the family resolved not to pay a dime as ransom to the kidnappers.

He said the family’s decision has already been made clear to the kidnappers whose identities, according to him, are already known.

“We’ve identified all those involved now, and our position, right from the day one, is that they must release him unconditionally. They must have made a mistake of identity. And now that they have realised their mistake, they must release him unconditionally,” Bekederemo said.
