UGHELLIâ€” Prominent Ijaw leaderÂ Â Chief Edwin Kiagbodo Clark has allegedÂ attemptsÂ Â Â by unscrupulous persons to distort facts in the case of the former Delta State governor , Chief James Ibori.
Clark in a statement addressed to the Inspector_General of Police and the President, Nigerian BarÂ Â Association, NBA decried the introduction of one Emeka Arinze, a lawyer, he alleged was brought in to join the team of Chief Ibori lawyers that were presently handling the case.
He asked, â€œwho is Emaka Arinze? or is he the same man in prime chambers of Professor Amos Utuama, now Deputy Governorâ€™s chambers?
â€œWe have come to realize that in the letter, Emeka Arinze claimed to be making an attempt to set the record straight on Iboriâ€™s case but we cannot understand what is so difficult to twist rather, the arrangement being employed to confuse the public is nothing but an exercise in crudity without regards to establised norms and values.â€
