Three policemen are feared to have been killed Tuesday night after suspected officials of the Nigerian Navy stormed a police division in Calabar, southern Nigeria.
The attack, according to reports, began shortly after 8:30 p.m and lasted till about midnight on Wednesday at Akim Divisional Headquarters.
According to the source, trouble began earlier in the day after a policeman stopped a naval officer at the checkpoint, but the officer reportedly refused to stop.
The source said the refusal had led to a shootout. He added that following the incident, some naval officers mobilised later in the evening and “set the police station ablaze.”
The state police command is yet to release an official statement concerning the development. The navy in the state has also not made any official statement concerning the issue yet.
