Nigerians Want Acrimony Between Police And Army Ended
The current face-off between the Nigeria Police Force and the Nigerian Army has continued to generate reactions from Nigerians particularly on social media.
Recall as previously reported by Naija News, the police on Wednesday, accused soldiers of the Nigerian Army of killing three of its operatives and a civilian during an operation in Taraba State.
The army, however, responded saying its men responded to a distress call and were previously not aware those killed during the operation were police officers.
A joint investigative team of both agencies headed by the Deputy Inspector General of Police in charge of Criminal Investigation Department, DIG Mike Ogbizi has already been set up to unravel the true circumstances surrounding the unfortunate incident.
This has however not stopped Nigerians from reacting to the on-going saga. See some of the reactions on Twitter:

In the first place why would d NA go for a rescue operation within the country, is that their duty? This was a planned operation from a syndicate in the Army & orders came from the top,in a same clime,the COAS will be sacked immediately.

Why is no one talking about the civilian that was killed, is he not important? Even our police didn’t give details about the civilian. Who was he, was he inside the vehicle? If yes, why was he inside that vehicle with the suspect? #ProvideAnswersNigerianArmy
