Officers of the Nigeria Police have reportedly laid siege to the residence of Joy Nunieh, a former acting managing director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).

According to available information, the men arrived the house located at 3, Owuru Creek View, off Herbert Macaulay Street, Old GRA, Port Harcourt, Rivers state, early Thursday morning.

The development comes in the wake of Nunieh’s appearance before a Senate panel in Abuja investigating the activities of the NDDC.

Godswill Akpabio and Nunieh had appeared before the Senate ad hoc panel investigating the alleged mismanagement of N40 billion by the interim management committee (IMC) of the NDDC.

Following their appearance, the duo have at different time exchanged words, trying to outshine each other.

Media personality, Fisayo Soyomobo said the invasion means the former Acting MD of the NDDC cannot leave for the Port Harcourt International Airport where she should be connecting a flight to Abuja.

 

He tweeted;

 

Dozens of policemen are circling the House of Joy Nunieh, the former MD of NDDC, who is scheduled to testify before a House of Reps panel today as part of the ongoing probe of NDDC.

The policemen arrived at Nunieh’s residence at 3 Owuru Creek View, off Herbert Macaulay Street, Old GRA, Port Harcourt, at about 4am. Their presence means she cannot leave for the Port Harcourt International Airport where she should be connecting a flight to Abuja.

Nunieh recently accused Niger Delta Minister Godswil Akpabio of trying to “come up” on her after failing to bribe her and convince her to take an oath of secrecy in Abuja.
