Edgal exchanges duties with Egbetokun in Police redeployment - ITREALMS

The Lagos State Police Commissioner, Mr. Edgal Imohimi, has exchanged duties with Mr. Kayode Egbetokun who was the elsewhile Commissioner for Explosives and Ordinance unit at the Police headquarters, reports ITREALMS.

This followed the redeployment exercise approved by the outgoing Inspector General of Police, Mr. Idris Ibrahim at the weekend, just as the opposition party may protest the redeployment as self-serving.

His redeployments filtered into ITREALMS newsroom on Sunday with Police sources confirming that Mr. Kayode Egbetokun has been appointed in acting capacity as the Commissioner of Police in Lagos.

Further, Police sources revealed that Imohimi who was redeployed to Abuja would now be the Commissioner of Police to oversee the Explosive Ordinance Unit, thereby taking over from Mr. Egbetokun.

ITREALMS recalls that Mr. Egbetokun was a Deputy Superintendent of Police in 1999 prior to his appointment as the Chief Security Officer (CSO) to Governor of Lagos State, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Although it was not confirmed if Mr. Egbetokun, would emerge as the substantive Commissioner of Police in Lagos, sources close to opposition party in the state, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are gearing to reject him, alleging he may have been redeployed to Lagos to serve his master with hope of delivering Lagos for Tinubu in the forthcoming elections.
