Ex- NDDC Managing Director Mrs Joy Nunieh, was nearly arrested by some policemen in her residence were she live in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, according to her the police men were trying different ways to break through my security door in my house before the arrival of my Governor Nyeso Eike.
Interview with news correspondent at the Government House in Port Harcourt after she was rescued from her house by Governor Nyesom Wike, Nunieh said that the policemen has no arrest warrant when she demanded for it, rather the want to forcefully arrest me, She further explained that “They (policemen) started trying to blast the security door due it is not just ordinary door, it was a security door, they couldn't break it in due time, Before then , I asked them for their warrant of arrest and they said they didn’t have any. I intentionally said I cannot go with the policemen who has no arrest warrant. I needed to see the warrant of arrest. We are not in a banana republic.
After a while of argument and dragging with them, my governor came and sent them away and said why would they come to arrest a woman like an armed robber? My governor told them that they should vacate the compound. I am safely here with my governor in Government House, Port Harcourt.”
Mrs Joy who was preparing to leave her home for the airport to board a flight to Abuja where she was supposed to give her submission to the House of Representatives Committee investigating the operations of the NDDC when the policemen invaded her property.
