Why Edgal Imohimi ‘Was Fired’ From Lagos
A background check has shown that the newly deployed Commissioner of Police in Lagos state, Kayode Egbetokun is a former chief security officer to Bola Tinubu, a national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Naija News reports that Imohimi Edgal, has been redeployed on Sunday by the police authorities to the force headquarters in Abuja.
Sources told TheCable that Imohimi, who is said to be an ally of Akinwunmi Ambode, the incumbent governor of the state, was “fired from Lagos” because he did not provide adequate security for the APC rally, which was held in Ikeja last week.
Recall that as earlier reported by Naija News, Musiliu Akinsanya, a strong member of the party and treasurer of the National Union Road Transport Workers (NURTW), popularly known as “MC Oluomo”, was stabbed by rival factions of the party, while some journalists were also shot at the rally.
Egbetokun was Tinubu’s CSO for a few years while he was the Lagos state governor before he was appointed commandant of Police Training School, Ikeja, Lagos.
The new commissioner was also the commander of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS), Lagos, from 2005 to 2007.
Imohimi was deployed to Lagos state on August 31, 2017, after serving as the deputy commissioner of police in charge of Operations in the state.
He will now head the explosive ordinance unit of the police force in Abuja, the country’s capital.
