Joy Nunieh, embattled former Director at Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) has revealed the events that led to her rescue from armed police officers who tried to arrest her without a warrant.
The Herald earlier reported that Rivers state Governor, Nyesom Wike stormed the residence of Nunieh which was besieged by heavily armed men with instructions to arrest her.
According to Nunieh who disclosed she called Wike to inform him of the police invasion , the former NDDC Director said she was lucky Wike came in the nick of time before armed officers could break down the security door that led to her room.
“They (policemen) started trying to break the security door. Because it was a security door, they spent time to try to break the door.
“Before, I asked them of their warrant of arrest and they said they didn’t have any. I then said I cannot go with any of the policemen. I need to see the warrant of arrest. We are not in a banana republic.
“So, my governor came and sent them out; and said why would they come to arrest a woman like an armed robber? My governor told them that they should leave the compound. I am safely here with my governor in Government House, Port Harcourt.”
