Three police officers confirmed dead as Navy, Police officers clash in Cross Rivers

A clash between police officers and Naval officers in Calabar, Cross Rivers state Tuesday night, has resulted in the death of three police officers and a police station set ablaze by rampaging Naval officers‎. According to reports, trouble started when a police traffic warden stopped a group of Naval officers that reportedly tried to beat the traffic light at a check point opposite the Navy barracks in the Akim area of the town in the afternoon of that particular day.

The Naval officers took offence at the police warden stopping them from breaking the law. This led to a faceoff which resulted in both parties calling for reinforcement. The Naval officers took their grievance to the Akim police station where they shot sporadically and set the station ablaze. They reportedly stopped fire fighters from stopping the fire at the station.

Three police officers reportedly died in the wake of the clash.

Meanwhile the Naval authorities are yet to comment on the unfortunate incident.

I wonder why men of the forces can't lay good example. Breaking the law and still claiming right.Among the uniformed men Police are always victim during clashes. Police learn from past experiences.

May the Law have it's full course. The actually violators of the law cannot run beyond the reach of the lengthy arm of the Law. Hooliganism in our force institutions...Nigeria needs help.

Even in civilized countries, security operatives can decide to beat the traffic when they are responding to an emergency.

The problem police have with their sister agency is respect, police never get to respect them, that is why they always beat them. Police don't even respect their seniors...they are too corrupt and useless most times...other agency always respect each other except police...those men in black need serious orientation.

No, it's shame to the Navy officers who acted wrongly because the police man did the rightful thing by stopping them.

They were assigned with the duty of protection of lives and properties. They ended up destroying it. Government should pin medals on them.

No please Nigeria police has no issue on this. Shame to Nigerian navy. If home keepers and leaders can break the laws what else remain ??

Babafemora said...

Why are members of our armed forces becoming unruly these days? i think the federal government needs to issue a straight directive to their commanding officers to call their officers and men to order before the situation degenerate into something else and all the culprits involved in this case should be given the maximum punishment.

Ibu aturu na police u dey say shame on abi. The naval devils...

Emeka Izuogu said...

This is wrong the police had every right to stop them for breaking the law... How will the go and kill three innocent policemen that had nothing to do with it

Scontituz said...

These are not the quality of men and women that should be in our Military and Nigeria Police. Arrogant and useless fellows serving themselves and not the Nigeria nation. It's just a reflection what they have imbibed. GOing forward, I hereby recommend effective immediately that the appropriate authorities should demote supervising officers and officers found in this kind of ugly situation.
