Of late, it appears orders no longer come from above. 

Just like the order to barricade the National Assembly by officials of the Department of State Service was not from above, the raid of the home of a Second Republic Senator and a Niger Delta chieftain, Mr Edwin Clark, was not also from above.

That is what the police are telling Nigerians. 

In fact the police have said the officials that raided the place were not authorised. They were on their own. 

The Nigeria Police Force, after the raid, apologised to Mr Clark over what it described as 'unauthorised raid of his residence in Abuja by four policemen'.

The spokesman for the police, Jimoh Moshood, said in a statement on Wednesday in Abuja that the incident was being investigated.

Four policemen on Tuesday, illegally raided the Abuja residence of Clark, but after the raid, the Inspector-General of Police, Mr Ibrahim Idris, ordered the detention of the policemen and the informant, pending a full investigation.

Mr Moshood said that the police delegation to Clark’s house comprised of the DiG Operations and some Commissioners of Police.

He said that the I-G had also directed the immediate presentation of the informant to the media before his prosecution in the law court.
