Falana Hails Wike For Foiling The Abduction Of Ms Joy By The Police, Urges President Buhari To Dissolve NDDC Managt Committee

Falana Hails Wike For Foiling The Abduction Of Ms Joy By The Police, Urges President Buhari To Dissolve NDDC Managt Committee

Femi Falana (SAN) has applauded the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, for foiling the attempted abduction of Ms. Joy Nunien by the Nigerian Police.

This is contained in a statement made available to TheNigeriaLawyer (TNL) titled “Kudos To Gov Wike”


“In a desperate bid to prevent Ms Joy Nunien from testifying before the House Committee probing the monumental criminal diversion of the huge public fund allocated to the Niger Delta Development Corporation the Police invaded her house in Port Harcourt, Rivers State at 4 am on Thursday, July 16, 2020. No doubt, Ms Nunien would have been abducted and taken to custody but for the Rivers State Governor, Mr. Nyesson Wike who intervened and prevented the Police from further infringing on her fundamental rights to personal liberty, dignity and privacy of her home guaranteed by sections 34, 35 and 37 of the Nigerian Constitution.” Falana said

He called on the Inspector General of Police to investigate the situation since Commissioner of Police of the state has denied deploying the Policemen involved in the abuse of power. He hailed Governor Wike for rescuing Ms Joy but added that the parties aggrieved by the revelations of Ms Joy can exercise the option of suing her for defamation

“Since the Rivers State Police Command had dissociated itself from the unlawful invasion of Ms Nunien’s home the Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Mohammed Adamu should investigate the circumstances surrounding the deployment of the team of police personnel involved in the such reckless abuse of power.

“While Governor deserves kudos for his timely intervention we advise the principalities who feel offended by Ms Nunien’s disclosures to sue for libel in a civil court. Apart from awaiting the report of the investigation committee”

Falana (SAN) also called on president Buhari to dissolve the management Committee of the NDDC in view of the damning corruption allegations. The statement reads:

“President Buhari should dissolve the illegally constituted Interim Management Committee of the NDDC which has since become a cesspool of grand corruption. The allegations and counter allegations made by the parties involved in the mismanagement of the NDDC have exposed the country to underserved ridicule.

Having regards to the fact that the Federal High Court sitting in Port Harcourt has restrained the Nigeria Police Force from arresting Ms Nunien pending the determination of the substantive application for the enforcement of her fundamental right to personal liberty the Inspector General of Police, Mr Adamu should prevail on the Rivers State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Joseph Mukan to desist from arresting her as such contemptuous act will portray the Nigeria Police Force as covering up the fraud in the NDDC.”
