According to latest reports, Rivers State Governor, Mr Nyesom Wike, has intervened in the alleged invasion of the home of former acting Managing Director, Niger Delta Development Commission, Joy Nunieh, in Port Harcourt.
A video had surfaced online, earlier on today which showed security operatives laying siege to Joy Nuneh's home, against the backdrop of a House of Representatives' Committee invitation to Nunieh to appear before a panel.
Recall that the Rivers State government had vowed to protect Nunieh, promising to protect their 'daughter' against any harm with regards to the controversial probe of the NDDC.
The state government seem to have followed through with their words as indications have emerged that Governor Nyesom Wike reportedly moved to the surrounded house of the embattled Nunieh and relocated her to the government house.
A part of the statement had read: “However, we wish to state that while we are not interested in identifying with the present unfolding drama in the NDDC; we will not, however, fail to protect our daughter from actual harm or perceived danger."
Recall that Joy Nunieh had had a public spat with Senator Godswill Akpabio over the management of funds in the Niger Delta Development Commission.
