There was serious tension yesterday between Naval and Police officers around IBB axis. The clash reportedly started after a police officer allegedly fired a shot at a Naval personnel during a provoked conversation.
The argument started after a police traffic warden stopped a group of Naval
officers that reportedly tried to beat the traffic light at a check
point opposite the Navy barracks in the Akim area of the town in the
afternoon of that particular day.
Naval officers reportedly embarked on a reprisal attack on the police officers around Akim police station stretching to IBB way.
The clash resulted in the death of three police officers and a police station set ablaze by the rampaging Naval officers.
The Naval officers reportedly stopped fire fighters from stopping the fire at the station.
Meanwhile the Naval authorities are yet to comment on the unfortunate incident.
