Edgal Imohimi, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, says he remains the police boss in the state despite earlier reports that he has been redeployed.

You would recall that reports were rife on Sunday, January 13th that Imohimi had been redeployed to Abuja to take over as the Commissioner of Police in charge of the Explosive Ordinance Unit at the Force Headquarters. He was meant to handover to Kayode Egbetokun today January 15th.

However, at the handover ceremony, Edgal told newsmen that the handover will not proceed as he has gotten an order from above to remain as the Commissioner.

“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.” he said
