The Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has said that sending armed policemen to raid the former Director General Niger Delta Development Commission, Joy Nunieh’s home, putting her under siege and house arrest and blocking her from leaving her house as she was scheduled to leave for the airport to travel to Abuja and testify before the Senate this morning is cowardly and shameful.
He disclosed this on his official social platform on Thursday, he said he was informed that the police raid on Joy’s house at 4.00am was yet another illegal operation and was NOT backed by a search or arrest warrant or authorised by the Commissioner of Police of Rivers state or the Inspector General of Police.
He added that it was simply an attempt to abduct her, take her away and possibly kill her and they spent a good deal of the time trying to break the doors of her home down and get in. “Wike arrived on the scene, broke the siege, delivered her from the enemy and saved her life. I commend him for this courage.
He emphasized that those who sent the policemen have hiding motive, to abduct and kill her, saying sexual harassment is one thing but abduction and murder or conspiracy to abduct and murder is quite another. “Governor Nyesom Wike actually saved her life by arriving on the scene and taking her out safely. He and Fayose shall forever be men after my heart.
According to him, “this reminds me of the time that my friend and brother Governor Ayo Fayose saved my wife Precious and my son Aragorn’s lives by delivering them from the hands of armed goons in police uniform who had targetted them for arrest and abduction and conducted an illegal operation against them in Ado Ekiti, Ekiti state 4 years ago.
“They had arrested and detained them illegally in a bank for hours and were about to physically drag them outside and into a vehicle, carry them to God knows where and abduct them when Fayose burst in on the scene with his men and forcefully delivered and saved them. What a man!”, he said.
