National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, has fiercely criticized the Federal Government and the Police for the disgraceful way it raided the home of the elder statesman and former Minister of Information, Chief Edwin K. Clark, saying that the action shows lack of respect of this regime for our elders.

Prince Secondus said that the shockingly unacceptable act shows the real character of this government and their attitude towards the nation’s senior citizens who should be accorded due respect for their contributions to the growth and development of the country.

The National Chairman said in a statement from his media office signed by Ike Abonyi that the operatives acted in line with the body language of the administration.

According to him, the invasion of Clark’s home has brought to the fore, the rascality of this government in abusing human rights with the IGP as a major culprit forgetting that they would not be in power forever.

“History is recording all the atrocities of this government and time would come when every actor would be made to answer for their roles in one way or the other,” he said.

Prince Secondus noted that this is what you get when a President of a country is seen saying publicly that he would jail more people when he is not a court, the deduction to the operatives hearing that from a Commander-in-Chief is that everybody especially perceived enemies of the government are preys who should be dealt with at the slightest opportunity.

The PDP boss said that rather than make the operatives the escape goat, the Inspector General of Police should take responsibility as he would have jumped to take credit if they had found arms in Chief Clark’s home.

“The IG is trying to play smart by sacrificing the operatives when he would have owned up the operation and taken the credit if they had succeeded in their illicit mission.

“What we are seeing is the image of an administration that has little or no regard for rule of law and human rights and operatives cash in on it at will,” he said.

The PDP National Chairman said that further inquest should be made on the unfortunate incident to explain how they got the search warrant and who authorised the operation in the first place.

According to Prince Secondus, the embarrassment meted out to Chief Clark must have been designed because of his vocal stance in defence of his people of the Niger Delta region.

He then regretted that human rights abuses akin to what happened to Chief Clark go on under this administration on daily basis but are hardly reported but warned that no evil would ever go unpunished.
