The Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, has apologised to Edwin Clark over the search conducted at his residence in Abuja by some police personnel.

The apology was tendered on behalf of the IGP and the Force by a delegation of top police officers who visited the elder statesman on Tuesday.

The Force Public Relations Officer, Jimoh Moshood, confirmed this in a statement, saying the police delegation was led by a Deputy Inspector General of Police, Habila Joshak.

Moshood added that the delegation was received by Clark and the apology was accepted by him.

He insisted that the police boss was not aware of and did not authorise the search of the elder statesman.

The Force spokesman disclosed that the IGP has ordered the parade of the informant in the case before he was charged to court.

A team of police officers allegedly from the IGP’s Special Tactical Squad had stormed Clark’s residence in Asokoro, Abuja with a warrant to search for weapons.

The elder statesman, in his reaction, described the incident as an embarrassment and threatened to take legal action over the raid.
