Mr Nyesom Wike, Governor of rivers state, on Thursday, saved the former acting Managing Director, Niger Delta Development Commission, Joy Nunieh, from a siege laid to her house in Port Harcourt by policemen.
The rivers state governor was said to have rushed to the ex-NDDC boss’ house after it was surrounded by armed security operatives.
In a video that surfaced online, the convoy of the governor was seen at the entrance of Nunieh’s house in Port Harcourt.
Nunieh had in a recent interview accused the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio, of sexually harassing her, corruption, and abuse of office, among other allegations.
But the minister, in a statement by his spokesman, Aniete Ekong, described the allegations as “false, malicious and libellous.”
A House of Representatives’ Committee had invited Nunieh to appear before it today in Abuja.
The reports gathered was that before the alleged invasion, the Rivers State Government had on Tuesday said it would not allow any harm befall Nunieh with regards to the ongoing probe of the NDDC.
