Following reports that he had been redeployed, Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi insists that he’s still in charge.
The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, on Tuesday said that there would be no change of guard for now.
According to Imohimi, he had invited the Press on Tuesday to witness the handing – and taking over ceremony between him and the incoming CP, Kayode Egbetokun, when they received a directive from Abuja to suspend the action.
This new information is coming after Punch had reported that Imohimi, had been redeployed to Abuja, to resume as the Commissioner of Police in charge of Explosive Ordinance Unit at the Force Headquarters with Mr Kayode Egbetokun taking over in acting capacity.
The CP, while addressing the press, in the presence of Mr Kayode Egbetokun, at the Lagos State Police Command’s headquarters, said, “I am sure that you know Mr Kayode Egbetokun, he is an old timer in the command.
“You all know that our first job is about order and direction; we were about concluding the handing and taking over procedure when we were instructed by our bosses from Abuja to suspend action for now. So, there will be no change of guard for now. Of course, we would keep the press briefed about any development.
“But I am happy, humbled that you find it serious enough for you all to come to witness what we are doing here. I consider it an honor.”
