Silencing Joy Nunieh Won’t Stop NDDC Probe – SERAP 

The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has kicked against the invasion of former Managing Director of the Niger-Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Joy Nunieh’s home.

The Rights group which believed that the move to arrest her was planned in order to prevent her from opening up on the corruption in the NDDC, noted that silencing her won’t stop the probe of the Commission.

Armed policemen had stormed her residence at 3, Owuru Creek view, off Herbert Macaulay Street, Old GRA, Port Harcourt on Thursday morning, disrupting her plan to appear before a Senate panel investigating the activities of the NDDC.

She was rescued by the State Governor, Nyesom Wike who drove her off to the Government House.

Reacting via its official Twitter page, SERAP wrote: “We condemn the harassment and intimidation of Joy Nunieh, former acting MD of NDDC by
@PoliceNG apparently to stop her from speaking out on the grave allegations of grand corruption in NDDC and impunity at the highest level of the agency.

“Nigerian authorities should focus on promptly and thoroughly investigating the grave allegations of corruption she has made instead of harassing and intimidating her for raising these allegations if the authorities are truly committed to fighting corruption in the country.

“Storming Joy Nunieh’s residence and silencing her isn’t going to resolve the Nigerians’ concerns overgrowing and widespread allegations of corruption and impunity in NDDC.”
