Early this week, there were accusations and counter accusations between the two gladiators. Akpabio accusing Nunieh of not carrying him along in the affairs of the commission and Nunieh accusing Akpabio of appropriating unrelated expenditures into the commission's budget.

Not done, the former Managing Director in an open interview, accused Akpabio of sexual harassment, which the minister countered.

Early hours of Thursday, news broke out that the former M.D was under house detention, surrounded by armed police men.

Reports have it that it took the intervention of Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike to rescue her from the detention.

Ms Joy Nunieh was billed to appear before the Adhoc Committee probing the Commission at Abuja but was prevented to travel by the detention.
