Police take over residence of former NDDC boss few hours to Reps probe

Armed operatives of the Nigerian Police Force in the early hours of Thursday took over the Port Harcourt residence of the former acting managing director of Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Joy Nunieh.
Nunieh, who confirmed the incidence in a telephone conversation with journalists, said she heard strange noise at about 4:30am and it turned out to be armed policemen who asked her to follow them and she refused.

“This morning I started hearing people marching at about 4:30. I was trying to get ready to catch the first flight to Abuja so that I can come and give my testimony.
“I sent my girl there and they said I should follow them. I said, this morning? What if they go and shoot me at 5 O’clock? I am not following anybody,” the former NDDC boss said.

Nunieh is scheduled to appear before the House of Representatives Committee on NDDC to give her testimony on the allegations of misappropriation of funds in the Commission this morning.
The immediate past NDDC chief has been in verbal battle with the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio, making stunning revelations about financial malfeasance and contracts scam in the Commission.
