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.

On a more serious note,naval and military officers need to educated, the police can arrest any of them that breaks d law cos that is their function. This issue of naval and military always trying to be superior has to stop,3 lives lost for no just cause,simply for ignorance. This goes to show the quality of our educational system.

Nigeria Police vs Nigeria Navy.

We can only pray that there is NO real breakdown of LAW and ORDER in Nigeria.

If there is, who will DEFEND the Nigerian citizens.

If our ARMED FORCES would rather KILL EACH OTHER - our PROBLEMS have just MULTIPLIED!
