The River State Police command putting a low push hike the Governor Wike is yet to give a green light Magu’ll be cleared of allegations, reinstated, says counsel.
But everything should be done within the confines of the law,” Mr Mukan said on TVC News Friday that was confirmed to CMM
“If you rescue your citizen, we expect you to turn her over to the police, who are in a better position to protect her,” he added.
In a separate interview with AriseTV, the police chief said although no prior notification was sent to Ms Nunieh, a “strong petition” was written against her and it required a “strong action.”
In the light of this, he said, the Inspector-General of Police monitoring unit from Abuja came on a “legitimate duty” to invite her, “but unfortunately, she refused to honour the invitation.”
“You cannot protect a criminal,” he said, referring to Governor Wike, before his interviewer asked him if she has been convicted.
To that, he said “she is under suspicion. Investigation will show whether she is culpable or not but when investigation is being obstructed, how do we come with a conclusive investigation?”
Ms Nunieh, a former head of the interim management committee of the NDDC, has been one of the actors in a back and forth controversy that has rocked the commission over alleged corruption.
