The drama unfolding between Joy Nuneih Ex-MD of NDDC And Senator Akpabio, Minister of Niger Delta Affairs
The former Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, Joi Nunieh, has on Monday, said that she slapped the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio, for sexually harassing her.
She said: “I slapped him. He tried to come on me. I am an Ogoni woman, and nobody messes with me. I showed Akpabio that Rivers women do not tolerate nonsense.”
Nunieh made the revelations while fielding questions from a team of Arise TV Journalists, on its programme, The Morning Show.
Meanwhile the Chief Protocol Officer to the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Mr. Kufre Okure Inima has been arrested by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) in Abuja, in connection with the controversies surrounding the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
Mr Inima is said to have been arrested in the early hours of today for allegedly disrupting the interview of the Former Acting Managing Director of Interim Management Committee of the Niger Delta Development Commission, Mrs. Joy Nunieh by Channels TV.
Mr. Inima popularly known as Kokoti is accused of hiring thugs and hoodlums to disrupt Mrs. Joy Nunieh’s interview in Abuja.
Recall that Mrs. Nunieh had made some damning allegations against the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio shortly after she appeared before the Senate Ad hoc Committee investigating NDDC.
The scene is getting interesting as Dr Cairo Said on Channels TV that one “Doctor Ufuoma” is currently training doctors across the Niger Delta on how to protect themselves from Covid-19, this to some analysts further confirmed the allegations by the erstwhile IMC’s chairman against Senator Godswill Akpabio.

‘’We are talking about corruption and this woman is changing the narratives to unrealistic sexual harassment that she knew will definitely bring sympathy and forgetfulness to the main issue’’
