There have not been any confirmation from the State government on the allegation

Meanwhile, the gale of resignations from the Rivers State Executive Council continued on Friday with three more commissioners joining the fray.

They are Commissioner for Transportation Dr. Jacobson Nbina;  Commissioner for Housing, Dr. Gift Worlu; and Commissioner for Environment, Austen Ben-Chioma.

Their resignations were contained in separate letters addressed to the governor through the Secretary to the State Government.

Both Nbina and Ben-Chioma were also commissioners during the immediate past administration of Nyesom Wike.
