GINA said that Clarke has been assured that his injuries, which include gunshot wounds to the leg and groin, are not life threatening. GINA said that Clarke showed Hinds the lacerations he suffered to his head after repeated gun-butts by one of two bandits who ambushed him, and the wounds he sustained from the gunshots after he attempted to resist.

According to GINA, Clarke recalled trying to engage his assailants in conversation to ascertain the motive behind the attack even as he was being struck in the head repeatedly by the robbers who he believes were trying desperately to make him unconscious before carrying out the robbery. “I’m a fighter, they couldn’t knock me out,” Clarke told the Prime Minister who commended him for his bravery.
