Three policemen were reportedly burnt to death on Tuesday, following a clash between the Police and some officers of Nigerian Navy in Calabar, Cross River state capital.

The Cable reports that the naval officers set the policemen ablaze in their station, starting with a misunderstanding between the two parties at a police checkpoint, opposite the Navy barracks in Akim area of the town.

  1. – foolishness and lack of patriotism in developed countries the miltary takes orders from the police as they are in charge of the civil populace, and they are kept s away from the public glare, the opposite is the case in Nigeria. What will the citizens do in this state of insurgency n militancy in our country? when sister agencies engage in such disgraceful acts. The Navy boss must act immediately to prosecute these hoodlums in the name of Navy personnels.
