According to Clark, on Saturday, March 23, 2024, the army conducted an operation to breach his land. Between thirty and forty armed men arrived in five vehicles and used both ground and airborne means.

“They used their legs to break open all the doors in the compound, including the security door to my sitting room,” Clark said.

Addressing journalists at his Asokoro Residence in Abuja, Clark underlined the need for a Commission of Inquiry into the recent killing of 16 officers and men of the 181 Amphibious Battalion at Okuama in Delta State.

Narrating the ordeal, Clark explained how soldiers even entered the house of his late brother, Ambassador Akporode Blessing Clark, and encountered his son during a bath, leaving him nearly naked.

Moreover, Clark recalled previous incident involving the Tactical Squad of the Nigeria Police, which had stormed his Abuja residence in 2018 with a search warrant bearing a false name, but found nothing incriminating.

Despite accepting the army’s apology for the mistaken raid, Clark expressed discomfort with concluding the recent incident as a mere misunderstanding, citing past experiences with security forces.
