Former Acting Managing Director the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC has recounted how she was rescued from a bunch of heavily armed policemen who laid siege in her Port Harcourt residence without an arrest warrant.
Nubieh was rescued from unforeseen harassment in the hands of the armed policemen by the governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike.
Speaking shortly after she was rescued at the Government House in Port Harcourt, the Rivers state capital on Thursday, Nunieh stated that the heavily armed policemen were trying to breaking the security door to her home before Governor Wike came in and ordered them out of her premises.
She revealed she had earlier called to inform Governor Wike about the uwarranted invasion of her residence by armed policemen.
The governor swiftly came to her rescue at the were point the policemen were trying so hard to pull down the security door leading to her direct room.
Narrating her ordeal, Nunieh said, “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.”
Nunieh was preparing to leave for Abuja to give her own submission to the House of Reps Committee before the police raided her house.
