Rivers State Governor, Mr Nyesom Wike, on Thursday, rescued the former acting Managing Director, Niger Delta Development Commission, Joy Nunieh, from a siege laid to her house in Port Harcourt by policemen.
The governor was said to have rushed to the ex-NDDC boss house after it was surrounded by armed security operatives.
In a video that surfaced online, the convoy of the governor was seen at the entrance of Nunieh’s house in Port Harcourt.
Nunieh had in a recent interview accused the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio, of sexually harassing her, corruption, and abuse of office, among other allegations.
But the minister, in a statement by his spokesman, Aniete Ekong, described the allegations as “false, malicious and libelous.”
A House of Representatives’ Committee had invited Nunieh to appear before it today in Abuja.
