“It’s Obstruction Of Justice” – Mixed Reactions Trail Wike’s ‘Rescuing’ Joi Nunieh From Police

Odunews.com reports that police officers stormed the residence of Joy Nunieh at the early hours of Thursday but was later ‘rescued’ by the Rivers state governor.

Mrs Nunieh was supposed to appear before a committee of the House of Representatives over the ongoing probe into allegations of corruption in the NDDC.

There have been allegations and counter-allegations by Mrs Nunieh and the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio since the inception of the probe.

With Wike’s intervention, Thursday’s incident took a new turn with Nigerians on social media reacting to the governor’s role in preventing the arrest.

While many social media users hail the governor for his actions, some others berated him for ‘obstructing justice’.
