The Nigeria police force say normalcy has been restored in Damaturu, Yobe after the clash between some personnel of the police and the Nigerian army.

NAN recalls that the clash occurred in the early hours of Wednesday in Damaturu.

A statement issued by the force spokesperson, Jimoh Moshood, said that a joint investigation team had been constituted by the chief of defence staff.

“This is aimed at uncovering the causes of the incident and deal with the situation appropriately to prevent such occurrence in the future,” he said.

Moshood noted that police and the Nigerian army have had a long good working relationship that could not be compromised.

He said that the inspector-general of police has directed the assistant inspector-general of police in charge of zone 12, Bauchi, and the commissioner of police in Yobe, to sustain the normalcy that has been restored.

“The Inspector General of Police hereby enjoins members of the public in Damaturu and other parts of Yobe State to go about their lawful activities without fear or apprehension” Moshood said.

He said that the renewed determination of the police to continue the fight against insurgency with other security agencies remained unequivocal and unwavering.
