Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, on Thursday, noted that he would always fight against injustice meted on any indigene of the state.
The Peoples Democratic Party chieftain stated this while reacting to the attempt to arrest the former Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, Joy Nunieh, by security operatives at her residence in Old GRA, Port Harcourt.
Wike in his statement described the invasion of the residence of Nunieh as a disgrace, he further stated that the action of the police operatives is a shame to the country.
The Rivers State Governor while speaking with newsmen in Government House, Port Harcourt, said the state is fully out for anyone who is responsible for the travails of Joy Nunieh.
“I had to drive to the area and saw over 50 policemen and when I asked, they said they were from IGP Monitoring Unit. So, IGP Monitoring Unit has now taken over the fighting of crime in Rivers State and the CP is not aware.”
“All these plenty of officers to take a woman as if she is a common criminal. If you want anything from her, invite her to come.”
“I don’t know who is involved; I don’t know who is in interested, however; nobody should push Rivers State to the point we will say that enough is enough. We will not just protect her, we will protect every citizen. I cry for this country. Mr President must know, Mr President must hear that what is happening in this country is…innocent people will die.”
“Nunieh is a Rivers daughter. From what has happened now, I will tell you that Rivers State is fully out. Anybody who is responsible for this abduction of our daughter, enough is enough.”
“All the Niger-Delta states, if they have a hand, they should call their people to order,” Wike warns.
