Governor Nysom Wike of Rivers State on Thursday morning moved decisively and rescued the former Acting Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) Ms Joi Nunieh from some police personnel that took surrounded her residence in Port Harcourt.
It was gathered that dozens of policemen encircled the house of Joy Nunieh, who is having a running battle with the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio over sleazes and other financial irregularities she leveled against the Minister.
The former acting MD of NDDC, was scheduled to appear before the House of Representatives Committee probing activities of the NNDC.
It was gathered that the policemen arrived at the residence of Nunieh situated at No. 3 Owuru Creek View, off Herbert Macaulay Street, Old GRA, Port Harcourt, at about 4:00am and condoned off the house.
The presence of the policemen prevented Joi Nuneih from leaving her residence thereby prevented her from going to the airport from where she was to board a flight to Abuja to enable her appear before the House of Reps to testify on the sordid allegations of financial embezzlement at the NDDC.
Joy Nunieh said that the police that wanted to arrest her had no warrant of arrest and she strongly believe that they may have been sent by the Minister of the Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Akpabio, who she openly accused of trying to “come up” on her after failing to bribe her and convince her to take an oath of secrecy in Abuja.
