The Director of Information, Nigerian Navy (NN), Navy Captain Suleman Dahun, on Wednesday, said the investigation was ongoing to unravel the cause of the ugly incidence between the Navy and Police in Calabar.

He said that, however, normalcy had since returned to Calabar after its personnel clashed with the Police on Tuesday,

Speaking to one of the eyewitnesses who said it was an unfortunate incidence that led to the loss of lives and destruction of property.He said that the service would do everything humanly possible to avert the future occurrence of such ugly clash.

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

It should be recalled that 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 4 p.m. on Tuesday.

“By 8 p.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.
