Wike rescues former NDDC MD, Nunieh from house arrest in Port Harcourt

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has “rescued” embattled former NDDC Managing Director Joy Nunieh from police detention at her residence to Government House Port Harcourt.

Officers had stormed the home of the former Interim Chairman of NDDC, Joi Nunieh at 3, Owuru Creek view, off Herbert Macaulay Street, Old GRA, Port Harcourt.

Governor Wike’s visit was predicated by the invasion of the residence of Nunieh by officers of the Nigerian police force early Thursday.

The reason for the Governor’s interference is yet unknown, as the development is said to be coming ahead of Nunieh’s appearance before a Senate panel in Abuja investigating the activities of the NDDC today.
