The Nigeria Police Force spokesman, Ag. DCP Jimoh Moshood, revealed that the force has apologized to Chief Edwin Clark over the unauthorised raid of his residence in Abuja by four policemen.
Moshood has made this known in a statement issued in Abuja on Wednesday.
The apology is coming after the Inspector-General of Police, Mr Ibrahim Idris, ordered the detention of the policemen and the informant who illegally raided the Abuja residence of Clark.
The statement read: “The IG did not authorize the search and has therefore sent a delegation of senior police officers led by DIG Joshak along with some Commissioners of Police who visited Chief Edwin Clark and apologized on behalf of the Nigeria Police Force and the IGP for the misconduct of the said police personnel and the attendant embarrassment the search has caused to the elder statesman and his family.
“The delegation was received by Chief Edwin Clark and the apology was accepted by him.”
