The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi had told the Press on Tuesday that there would be no change of guard now.
Imohimi while addressing the Press who were there on Tuesday to witness the handing- and taking over ceremony between him and the incoming CP, Kayode Egbetokun, said they were about concluding the process when they received order from Abuja to suspend the ceremony.
It was widely reported last week that Imohimi had been redeployed to Abuja as the Commissioner of Police in charge of Explosive Ordnance Unit at the Force Headquarters, while Egbetokun had replaced him in acting capacity.
Imohimi who was addressing the Press in the presence of Egbetokun at the Lagos State Police Command headquarters 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 in 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 honour”.
