Kiagbodo, the country home of elder statesman and national Ijaw leader, Chief Edwin Kiagbodo Clark, was Sunday thrown into wild jubilation following the release of his second son, Mr Ebikeme Clark, by kidnappers.
The younger Clark was last Wednesday, April 2, 2014, reportedly abducted from Kiagbodo in Burutu Local Government Area of Delta State, by masked gunmen operating through the local river in Kiagbodo, Burutu Local Government Area of Delta State.
He was released in the early hours of Sunday after more than three days in the kidnappers’ custody in a boundary community between Delta and Bayelsa states, THISDAY learnt.
One of Clark’s personal aides, Prince Abugo, told THISDAY Sunday that “the atmosphere in Kiagbodo, as we speak now, could be likened to that of a carnival. There is much rejoicing because everybody is happy.”
