The reported redeployment of Fatai Owoseni out of Lagos State as the Commissioner of Police by the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, has created confusion in the state as Owoseni yesterday, told newsmen at the Police Officers Mess, Ikeja, that he remains the bonafide CP of the state.
The order posting Owoseni out of Lagos state, came from the Inspector General of Police, through a police wireless message with number DTO: 29817/18/2017.
He was expected to resume at the Force Headquarters, Abuja, where he will work at the Force Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Department, FCIID.
The signal, similarly ordered the posting of Imohimi Edgar to replace Fatai Owoseni as the new Lagos State Commissioner of Police.
However, Owoseni in a reaction to the redeployment, told newsmen at the Lagos State Police Command, Ikeja, that he was yet to receive any directive concerning a new Police Commissioner in the state.
He was quoted as saying: “When we get the information, we will let you know.”
The Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Jimoh Moshood, refused to comment on the issue, but a highly-placed officer, who pleaded anonymity, hinted that Owoseni had been recommended for a course by the Police Service Commission.
