The remains of slain police corporal, Mr. Davis Odudu, in the Navy/Police clash in Cross River State has been laid to rest.

Odudu, a Station Guard at the Akim Police Station on IBB Way in Calabar, was shot alongside his colleague, Corporal Emmanuel Mbang, by some naval ratings on May 30, 2017, after a misunderstanding between a police traffic warden and some navy personal earlier that day.

The naval personnel were alleged to have gone ahead to use a General Purpose Machine Gun to bring down a section of the Akim Police Station and in the process destroyed one police operational vehicle and a private car.

Mr. Bassey Edet, of the Apostolic Messiah Church in Calabar-South, while delivering a sermon during vigil on Friday for the repose of Odudu’s soul, said life was like a dew that fades away within a twinkle of an eye and alluded to James 4:14.

A close colleague of the late Odudu, Mr. Justus Edem, said he was a chorister in this church.

He said,” The whole episode is so sad. I will miss a lot about him because his presence comes with light. He was a lively fellow who has that inspiring spirit.

Wife of the deceased, Mrs. Etido Davis Odudu, said, “I pray God to accept his soul and grant him eternal rest. The police have been supportive so far. He had good relationship with his colleagues while he was alive.”

The corps was taken to Abak Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State where it was laid to rest.
