Police sources say Mr. Achong was on patrol duty at the Anyikang axis of the Ogoja – Katsina Ala highway when at about 9:45 AM, his team stopped a commercial vehicle for search.

The bus, a Ford Galaxy was said to be conveying passengers to Calabar and following a heated argument which degenerated to a physical confrontation, Inspector Achong was said to fatally injured and died at the General Hospital in Bekwarra which is operated by the Bakor Hospital consortium.

The passengers and driver were later arrested and alongside the bus, transferred to the State command at Diamond hill in Calabar where sources say they are been questioned.

Unconfirmed information reaching CrossRiverWatch suggests that the Army is willing to release Corporal Femi for investigation and possible prosecution.
