The Nigerian Navy has begun investigation to unravel the cause of the ugly incidence between the Navy and Police in Calabar.

The Director of Information, Nigerian Navy (NN), Navy Captain Suleman Dahun, said in a telephone interview it was an unfortunate incidence that led to loss of lives and property.

He told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that normalcy had since returned to Calabar after its personnel clashed with the Police on Tuesday.

He said that the service would do everything humanly possible to avert future occurrence of such ugly clash.

Dahun told NAN that everything had been resolved, and normalcy had also returned, saying “everybody was going about his or her business as usual.”

The clash between the two security outfits was caused by a disagreement between a police traffic officer and a naval officer at a traffic light in Akim neighbourhood, downtown, Calabar, around 4p.m. on Tuesday.

“By 8p.m., it had developed into a deadly riot, with suspected naval officers attacking a police divisional headquarters, killing three officers and injuring others after setting the facility alight.

“A naval officer sustained gunshot wounds from suspected police fire. No inmates escaped during fracas,” police said. (NAN)
