Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has reportedly stormed the residence of a former acting Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Joy Nunieh, after police operatives laid siege to her house in the early hours of Thursday.
Wike arrived Nunieh’s residence off Herbert Marculay Street, Amada-Flat at about 10:30 this morning following reports that she had been prevented from leaving her house by a team of policemen allegedly on the order of the Inspection General of Police.
Nunieh was scheduled to appear before the House of Representatives ad hoc committee set up to probe malfeasance in the commission.
A visibly angry Wike questioned the policemen on who authorised the siege and when they claimed it was from the IGP, he beckoned on Ms Nunieh to come out from her house.
The former NDDC boss joined the Rivers State governor in his car to escape the police siege even though she was scheduled to appear before a Senate panel investigating the activities of the NDDC in Abuja on Thursday.
