The House Committee on Niger Delta Development Commission has summoned the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs , Senator Godswill Akpabio , to appear before it .
The committee issued the summons after the former acting Managing Director of NDDC, Dr Joy Nunieh , made a series of allegations against him , concerning his administration of the NDDC.
The investigation of the NDDC had got messier on Thursday as the police invaded the Port Harcourt residence of Nunieh .
It was alleged that the invasion was to prevent Nunieh from moving from Port Harcourt to Abuja to testify before the panel .
The Governor of Rivers State , Nyesom Wike , who prevented the police from taking Nunieh away , had asked the Inspector General of Police , Mohammed Adamu , to probe the invasion of the former NDDC boss .
