SWITZERLAND, JULY 16 – Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has intervened to stop an alleged attempt to place a former acting Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Joy Nunieh, under house arrest in her Port Harcourt home.
This is coming few days after Ms. Nunieh accused the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio of sexual harassment.
Heavily armed policemen on Thursday stormed the House of Ms Nunieh, who was scheduled to testify before a House of Representatives panel on the same day as part of the ongoing probe of NDDC.
According to media report, the policemen arrived at Nunieh’s residence at 3 Owuru Creek View, off Herbert Macaulay Street, Old GRA, Port Harcourt, at about 4am.
Governor Wike reportedly forced entry into Joy Nunieh’s residence, ordered police officers out and later drove off with her.
Nunieh recently accused Niger Delta Minister Godswil Akpabio of trying to “come up” on her after failing to bribe her and convince her to take an oath of secrecy in Abuja.
