After unnecessary denials by erstwhile Commissioner of Police, Lagos State Command, Fatai Owoseni, of his redeployment, the authorities have finally confirmed Imohimi D. Edgar as the new commissioner.
Owoseni had earlier denied knowledge of his redeployment to Abuja saying he was not aware and that he remained Lagos Police Commissioner.
However, the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, on Thursday, has ordered the posting of Mr. Imohimi D. Edgar to Lagos State Police Command as the new Commissioner of Police.
“Ag/CP Edgar Imohimi has taken over and resumed in official capacity as the Commissioner of Police Lagos State Police Command with immediate effect.
“Formal handing- and taking-over activities are going on smoothly between the former and the present Lagos State CP,” a press statement signed by Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Olarinde Famous-Cole, on behalf of the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State Police Command, reveals.
