Kayode Egbetokun, former chief security officer to Bola Tinubu, a national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has been named the new commissioner of police in Lagos state.
Edgal Imohimi, the outgoing commissioner was redeployed on Sunday, to the force headquarters in Abuja.
Sources revealed 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 held in Ikeja last week.
Egbetokun was Tinubu’s CSO for a few years before he became the 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 would now head the explosive ordinance unit of the police force in Abuja, the country’s capital.
Kayode Egbetokun has been asked to take over from Edgal as acting police commissioner in the state till further notice.
