Imohimi Assumes Duty as Lagos Police Commissioner


Mr. Edgal Imohimi will today assume duty as the new Commissioner of Police (CP) in Lagos State, spokesman for the Command, Olarinde Famous-Cole, has said.

Imohimi, a Deputy Commissioner of Police, assumed office following his confirmation as the new police commissioner in the state by the Inspector-General of Police (IG), Ibrahim Idris.

“Edgal Imohimi has taken over and assumed duty in official capacity as the new Commissioner of Police, Lagos State Police Command, with immediate effect.

“Formal handing and taking over notes is going on smoothly between the former and the new Lagos State CP,” Famous-Cole said in a statement issued to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN)

Fatai Owoseni, the former CP, had on Wednesday denied knowledge of his re-deployment from Lagos and the appointment of a new police commissioner for the command.

Until his appointment as the state police commissioner, Imohimi was Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of operations in the state.
