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

Delta State Po­lice Pub­lic Re­la­tions Of­fi­cer, DSP Ce­lestina Kalu, con­firmed this yes­ter­day in an in­ter­view with news­men in Warri. Kalu said the vic­tim was re­leased by the Ki­ag­bodo wa­ter­side with­out ran­som.

``Clark was re­leased in the early hours of to­day (Sun­day) by his cap­tors and no ran­som was paid,’’ she said.

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

``I can­not ex­plain how it hap­pened, but it was un­pleas­ant. I was taken to an un­known des­ti­na­tion in the creeks, but I was re­leased by the grace of God,’’ he said.

Ebikeme Clark was ab­ducted while he was pay­ing 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. (NAN)
