The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) has accused Mr. Ebikeme Clark, the son of Nigeria’s Statesman, Chief Edwin Clark, of orchestrating his own abduction in order to defraud government.
Ebikeme Clark was kidnapped last week causing ripples in Nigeria and the Niger Delta region in particular. But a statement signed by MEND spokesman, Mr. Jomo Gbomo said the young man orchestrated the kidnap to defraud and enrich himself.
“It was actually a clever orchestrated fraud masterminded by Ebikeme who stage-managed his own abduction.
The ransom of 500Million Naira was paid by the Delta State Government from its security vote and was shared amongst all those involved in this scam”, MEND spokesperson said in the statement.
