Scene of the attack

At least three persons are reportedly dead after suspected naval officers attacked a police station in Calabar, Cross River State on Tuesday.

According to Premium Times, the naval officers attacked and burnt down the police station following a row with some police officers earlier in the day.

Some naval officers had allegedly ran the red light and were apprehended by police officers. “Rather than listen, they descended on the policemen and beat them up. This was around 5 p.m,” a witness said.

“Police officers now called for back up and and the Navy also called for reinforcement and they took over the road leading to the airport. But the Navy Commander and police commissioner in the state intervened and the two sides backed down. However, around 8:00 p.m., when everyone thought the matter had been resolved, naval officers descended on Akim Police Station and started shooting and burnt down the facility. We confirmed three bodies but we feared there are more,” the witness added.

 

The attack started at about 8.30pm and continued up until midnight.

The naval officers also allegedly blocked fire fighters from gaining access to the station.

    I heard it differently on Twitter
    I heard that the police killed a naval officer first
    From experience I tell you that is a big deal.

    This is sad and unacceptable, some of these uniform guys are worse than animals. If they are not killing innocent civilians, then they’re killing themselves. Smh!
