The former managing director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) has been rescued by Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike after her home located in the State’s capital, Port Harcourt was surrounded by security operatives, who barred her from leaving the premises.
In circulating videos, Wike forced entry into Nunieh’s house, ordered the armed personnel out of the residence and drove off with her in his convoy shortly afterward.
Nunieh, who spoke at the Government House in Port Harcourt on Thursday, said the heavily armed policemen wanted to arrest her without a warrant and tried breaking the security door to her residence before the governor’s intervention, The Punch reports.
The former NDDC MD explained that she had earlier called the governor to inform him about the invasion of her residence by policemen, adding that Wike came to her rescue at the point the policemen were still trying to pull down the security door leading to her room.
OnoBello Media gathered that she was preparing to go to Abuja to give her submission to the House of Reps Committee before the police raided her house.
