Rivers State Governor, Mr. Nyesom Wike has reportedly moved to intervene in the stand-off between the embattled former NDDC Acting Managing Director, Joi Nunieh and the police who invaded her privacy in the early hours of today. It was gathered that Joy Nunieh was due to appear before a House of Representatives Committee in Abuja today.
Officers had stormed the home of Joy Nunieh at 3, Owuru Creek view, off Herbert Macaulay Street, Old GRA, Port Harcourt.
Governor Wike’s visit was predicated by the invasion of the residence of Nunieh by officers of the Nigerian police force early Thursday.
The reason for the Governor’s interference is yet unknown, as the development is said to be coming ahead of Nunieh’s appearance before a Senate panel in Abuja investigating the activities of the NDDC today.
