Police Deny Arresting Amaechi In Port Harcourt

Rivers State police command has denied the allegation making the rounds that it has arrested the immediate-past governor of the state and Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Amaechi.

State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Nnamdi Omoni, in a statement issued on behalf of the state Commissioner of Police, Usman Belel, condemned the alleged arrest, describing it as diversionary and mischievous.

Omoni urged members of the public to discountenance the report, which was reportedly aired by one of the television stations in Port Harcourt, saying that the CP had ordered an investigation into the report.

He stressed that neither the police nor any other security agency arrested the former governor, adding that the report claimed that Amaechi was arrested on the allegation of corruption, as directed by the Inspector General of Police.
