Wike had raced to Nunieh ’s residence along with some of his security details on Thursday to rescue her from security operatives who claimed they had orders to arrest her.
The governor who fumed that the security operatives had no arrest warrant took Nunieh under protective custody in Government House , Port Harcourt .
