The Minister for Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio, has been summoned to appear before the House Committee on NDDC by 11 am on Monday, July 20, 2020.
The House of Representative vowed to issue a warrant of arrest for Senator Akpabio if he fails to appear before the NDDC panel.
Naija News reports that the former Acting Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, Joy Nunieh, had appeared before the House of Reps via Zoom.
Nunieh was expected to appear before the committee on Thursday before police operatives laid siege at her residence in Port Harcourt.
The former NDDC boss was, however, rescued by Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State and taken to the Government House, after the Governor noted that the police had no arrest warrant and the Commissioner of Police in the state was not aware of the incident.
Meanwhile, the state police command on Thursday defended the invasion of police operatives at the residence of the former Managing Director of Niger Delta Development Commission, Joi Nunieh.
