After allegedly invading the Enerhen Police Divisional Headquarters in the Uvwie Local Government Area of Delta State and assaulting the on-duty police sergeant, the police officer was reportedly beaten.
This is said to have resulted in gunfire in the vicinity of the station as early as 7:30 a.m. on Friday, forcing nearby shop owners to quickly close their doors.
During the chaos, area residents who were taking their children to school or going to work were forced to return home for safety until the gunfire subsided.

It was discovered, however, that the Navy personnel were at the Police Station to request the release of a relative who had been arrested and abused by station officers.
By the time journalists arrived at the station, none of the officers were prepared to comment on the incident, but the area had returned to normalcy.
Navy Commander Samuel Musa, Base Operations Officer, NNS Delta, Warri, did not respond to calls and text messages.
According to sources, the naval personnel involved in the incident have been detained while an investigation is conducted.
The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the Delta Police Command, DSP Bright Edafe, has yet to respond to our correspondent’s inquiries prior to the filing of this report.
