I Remain Lagos CP, Says Edgal Imohimi

New Lagos Police Commissioner

Imohimi Edgal told reporters on Tuesday that he remains the Lagos State Commissioner of Police at the Command Headquarters, Ikeja GRA.

According to him, he received a call from Police Headquarters in Abuja that there is no change of Guard in Lagos Police Command.

After receiving the call, Edgal went upstairs where the Divisional Police Officers (DPO) converged to notify them of the “good news.”

Reporters heard the officers jubilating over the news.

Earlier, the car of the Acting Commissioner of Police designate, Kayode Egbetokun was parked at CP’s place while Edgal’s car was parked at another place.

Immediately, after the announcement, Egbetokun’s car was removed and Edgal’s replaced it.

Egbetokun left without speaking with reporters.

Police authorities had directed Mr Kayode Egbetokun to take over from Imohimi as police commissioner in Lagos.

Imohimi was then redeployed to the Force Headquarters in Abuja as the Commissioner of Police in charge of Explosive Ordinance Unit.

He, however, told the reporters who were at the command headquarters to witness the handover and takeover ceremony between him and Mr Egbetokun that the ceremony would no longer hold.

Imohimi explained that they were in the process of concluding the procedure which began on Monday when they got a signal from the Force Headquarters to maintain status quo.
