A Rivers State High Court sitting in Port Harcourt has restrained the Nigeria Police Force and other law enforcement agencies from arresting the former acting Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, Joy Nunieh.
Justice E. Thompson on Friday granted an ex parte order in an application filed by her counsel, Slyvester Adaka, marked, PHC/1128/2020.
Thompson, also restrained the Niger Delta Development Commission or any other body from arresting Nunieh, pending the hearing and determination of the matter before the court.
In his latest outburst, Senator Godswill Akpabio, Nigeria’s Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, had vowed to take legal action against the former Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, Ms. Joy Nunieh, for allegedly defaming his character.
This threat was contained in a statement titled, “Akpabio to sue Joy Nunieh for defamation, denies ‘false allegations’,” signed by his special assistant, Anietie Ekong, in Abuja, on Friday, said the minister has already instructed his lawyers to seek legal redress.
Ekong described Joy’s allegations against his principal as tissues of lies noting that at no time did the minister make advances towards her.
