BREAKING : Gov Wike Storms Ex-NDDC MD’s Residence, RESCUES Her From House Arrest
Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has made good on his promise to “protect” the embattled former Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) Managing Director Joy Nunieh.
This is as the governor stormed her home of residence this morning to rescue Nunieh from “house arrest.”
Zolex had earlier reported that officers of the Nigerian police force stormed the residence of Joy Nunieh, former acting managing director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC.
The security agents arrived at the residence (pictured) located at 3, Owuru Creek view, off Herbert Macaulay Street, Old GRA, Port Harcourt, Rivers state, early Thursday morning.
In a swift action, Governor Wike’s convoy which had earlier driven past the street to Joy Nunieh’s residence eventually forced entry into her residence and ordered the police officers out.
Moments later Nunieh emerged from the building and was driven off in the same vehicle as the Governor.
Meanwhile, reporters were earlier denied access into the Port Harcourt residence of Joy Nunieh by stern-looking mobile policemen some of whom were armed with tear gas canisters
According to them, there was no directive to allow any media presence near or within the residence.
President Buhari’s minister, Godswill Akpabio and Nunieh have been embroiled in a war of words over allegations of corruption in the NDDC.
The former MD of NDDC had recently accused Akpabio of s3xual harassment.
She had also alleged that the minister asked her to change the dollars in the NDDC account; sack the head of the legal team who is from the north; remove all directors who refused to follow his instructions and also to implicate Peter Nwaoboshi, chairman of the Senate committee on NDDC.
She also said Akpabio was awarded 30 contracts before she became the commission’s acting MD.
Akpabio had, in turn, denied her allegations.
The Rivers state government had previously warned that no harm must befall Nunieh, whom it described as its daughter.
