Odunews.com reports that Police officers stormed the Port Harcourt apartment of Mrs Nunieh in an attempt to arrest her but was prevented by the Rivers State Governor, Nyesome Wike.

The Governor thereafter claimed that the Rivers state’s Commissioner of Police was not aware of the arrest.

Refuting the governor’s claim, the Rivers State Public Relations Officer, Nnamdi Omoni, said the IGP and the Rivers State Commissioner of Police, Joseph Mukan, were duly informed of the intended arrest.

He said: “We state that the Officers who were at the residence of the former Ag. MD were from the IGP Monitoring Team in and were here on Official assignment.

“That before they proceeded to her residence, they observed due protocols and requisite standard operating procedures,including going through the processes of arriving themselves at the Headquarters with their Investigation Activities duly signed and approved by the Commissioner of Police, CP Joseph G Mukan psc (+)

“That they went to her residence with Mobile Policemen, suggesting of course that they were there on official duty and not illegal duty as speculated.

“That, the reference indicating that the Officers were there without the directive of the CP nor the IGP is preposterous and most unfortunate, hence should be discountenanced and disregarded.”
