NIGERIA- Nigerians on social media are having a field day as they celebrate the redeployment of a controversial police officer, Abayomi Shogunle.
Shogunle is quite popular on social media largely due to his ‘loose’ talks on controversial topics. Little wonder news of his redeployment to a far-flung area sparked celebration on social media.
Frank Mba, the Police spokesperson, confirmed that Shogunle had been redeployed to a town in Ebonyi state, saying: “Yes he has been removed and redeployed to Ebonyi State as Area Commander of Nkalagu.”
Until now, Shogunle was the Head of the Complaint Response Unit of the Police.
See some hilarious social media reactions below…

.@YomiShogunle isn't perfect, had reasons to disagree with a number of his positions, but he pioneered a police complaints Centre that did more good than bad.
Wishing him, every @PoliceNG officer he will lead and the community they now serve the very best and God's protection. pic.twitter.com/RsoM9UzJ33

Dear Yomi Shogunle. I heard you have been deployed to Nkalagu.
Brother do not be angered. I can assure you that Nkalagu is a home you'll love to live in. It is accommodating with little or no traffic unlike Lagos.
You can also get all the luxury lifestyle in Enugu just be civil.

Ebonyi welcomes @YomiShogunle to Nkalagu. Please note:
1. Nobody will call you “Buoda Yomi” here.
2. You will not be in the state capital.
3. You will be busy with serious issues and should not have time to mis-yarn on Twitter.
4. Small boys will call you “Punish”, not Police.😂
