I am still in charge! – Edgal Omohimi

The “immediate past and current Commissioner” of Police, Lagos State, Edgal Imohimi, has announced that he remains the substantive commissioner of the state despite an initial announcement of his redeployment earlier in the week.

Mr. Imohimi who made the declaration on Tuesday at a handover-takeover ceremony between him and supposed incoming CP, Kayode Egbetokun, said that they were about concluding the process for his redeployment when a directive came from Abuja asking them to suspend the action.

During a media briefing witnessed by Mr. Egbetokun at the Lagos State Police Command’s headquarters, Mr. Imohimi 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.
