Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike says the invasion of armed policemen of the residence of the residence of the former Acting Managing Director of the NDDC Joi Nunieh in the wee hours of Thursday morning,by men claiming to be members of the Inspector General Monitoring unit suggested sinister motives.
Wike who rescued Nunieh said under a civilized society, the proper thing the security agents would have done was to invite Nunieh to answer to any allegation..
Governor described the incident as a disgrace and wondered what could have happened if they succeeded in gaining entrance to her main room.
According to the governor, Nunieh was supposed to testify before the House of Representative’s Committee and armed men were at her premises to abduct her.
“She is supposed to testify before the House of Representative’s Committee and here we are having armed men wanting to abduct her.
“We came out to protect our daughter and we will do so to every Rivers citizen.. That is the oath of office l swore to.it doesn’t matter the political affiliation.We will not allow anybody to destroy Rivers State..
“It is so unfortunate and I cry for this country concerning the ways things are going.They didn’t have a warrant of arrest, but would storm somebody”s house, infact, the State Commissioner of Police is not aware’
Wike called on the governors of states that make up the NDDC to ensure that they do not have a hand in the planned abduction of Nunieh.
