  • PublishedJune 14, 2017

Following a recent clash between personnel of the Nigerian Navy and Police in Calabar, Cross River State, the Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has set up a high-profile committee to investigate the remote and immediate causes of the recent clash between personnel of the Nigerian Navy and Police in Calabar, Cross River State.

This was made known in a statement by Defence spokesman Major General John Enenche on Tuesday.

He said the committee is mandated to recommend appropriate sanction(s) to anyone or group of people that are found culpable in the avoidable incident.

He added that, “this is aimed at checkmating and subsequently eliminating such incidents in the future, in order to enhance the relationship between the Military and other Security and Response Agencies in Nigeria.”

“The Defence Headquarters hereby appeal to members of all Security and Response Agencies to embrace espirit de corps in the course of carrying out their duties and have mutual respect and understanding for each other,” Gen. Enenche stated.
