Soldier assaults female police officer for stopping his car in Cross River

An officer of the Nigerian army has assaulted a female police officer in Calabar, Cross River’s capital.

According to reports, the Mobil junction along the Murtala Mohammed highway in the state has been temporarily blocked over a ruckus involving officers of the army and police.

The incident happened on Saturday morning, November 19, after an army official ‘in mufti’ assaulted a police officer directing traffic at a busy intersection because she stopped his car.

In pictures seen by TheCable, the female police officer looked battered, with blood oozing out from her head.

The officer, dressed in a red t-shirt and a short and driving a black Toyota Corolla with registration number, Lagos AGL 175 HA, was said to have dealt heavy punches on the female officer leading to serious bleeding around the eye region.

The army officer, who was with his colleagues during the altercation, had since taken to his heels, according to The Cable.

His colleagues, who were reportedly on their way to the barracks along Ekorinim, alighted from their vehicle when they noticed their fellow officer in a dispute.

They joined in the quarrel with officers from the state housing police station before helping their colleague escape, according to an eyewitness.

The source added that another female army personnel assaulted another female police officer for attempting to take pictures of the soldiers who arrived to save their colleague.

Meanwhile, the state’s police spokesperson, Irene Igbo, is yet to verify the incident at the time of filing this report.
