The police in Port Harcourt on Friday has asked Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, to hand in former Acting Managing Director of Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, Joi Nunieh.
The Rivers Commissioner of Police, Joseph Mukan, said the command had knowledge of the mission of the IGP monitoring unit that came to arrest Nunieh in her Port Harcourt home at 4am on Thursday.
Wike had driven to her residence to rescue her from the IGP squad after Nunieh made a distress call to him. He took her to Government House beyond the reach of the police team.
But CP Mukan said the police squad was on an authorised mission that was endorsed by the Rivers State Police Command.
Mukan said he believed the governor would comply with the request by the police to turn in the former NDDC MD. He also promised that the police would not harass or intimidate citizens.
Nunieh and Minister of Niger Delta, Godswill Akpabio, have been having a media war over ongoing scandalous revelations coming out of the probe of the NDDC by the National Assembly.
Akpabio has denied Nunieh’s claims that he sexually harassed her and attempted to make her take an oath before the award of certain contracts by the commission.
