Gov Nyesom Ezenwo Wike's impact on former NDDC's Boss's Arrest -Joy Nunieh

On thursday,security operatives invaded the residence of Dr Joy Nunieh who was the former acting managing director of the Niger Delta Development commission (NDDC).

Dr. Joy Nunieh's apartment was stormed by security operatives forcefully at about 04:00am but all attempts made to apprehend her which went on for hours proved abortive. 

Dr Joy Nunieh immediately requested for their arrest warrant but when the security operatives could not offer any, she quickly called the Rivers state governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike who swiftly responded to her distress call.

On his arrival at her residence, he was so displeased on the manner of arrest and when he found out that the operatives had no warrant he dismissed them.

The Rivers state governor requested that Dr Joy Nunieh follows his convoy which transported her to the state house where she is currently taking refuge. 

Dr Joy Nunieh has appreciated the governor for his quick response and for coming to her aid, she also narrated her story of the incident saying " I tired to reach him (Gov Wike) but his phones were off so i called some people and they said these might not be real policemen".

"They said they (security operatives) came to take me away, i said for what? Do they have a warrant for arrest ? So i left it.

" About they broke the gate and later senator Magnus now called me that he had reached the commissioner of police who said he didnt know anything about it"

"So the CP called,i sent him my address, they told me the CP was downstairs but the CP was not downstairs , it was the deputy commissioner who was around, so i opened the door, they wanted to grab me so i pushed back the door and locked it.

"I got through to my governor, they tried to break the back door, its a security door so they kept hitting for over one hour and they couldn't get access.

"So my governor came,asked them for their warrant and why they did not invite me to the police, that i will come,instead of going to take a woman like a criminal.

“ so the governor took me in his car, so here i am, refuging in the government house.

“I want to thank his excellency for keeping to his words that nothing should happen to the daughter of Rivers state. 

This was her story...
