Edgal Imohimi on Friday assumed duty as the new Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, spokesman for the Command, ASP Olarinde Famous-Cole, has said.

Mr. Imohimi, a Deputy Commissioner of Police, assumed office following his confirmation as the new police commissioner in Lagos State by the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris.

“Edgal Imohimi has taken over and assumed duty in an official capacity as the new Commissioner of Police, Lagos State Police Command, with immediate effect.

“Formal handing and taking over notes is going on smoothly between the former and the new Lagos State CP,” Mr. Famous-Cole said in a statement.

Fatai Owoseni, the former CP, had on Wednesday denied knowledge of his re-deployment from Lagos and the appointment of a new police commissioner for the command.

Until his appointment as Lagos police commissioner, Mr. Imohimi was Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of operations in Lagos State.

    Please, help travelling Nigerians from constant harassment/demand of bribes from Nigerian Immigration/Customs officials at point of departure/entry at MM Airport in Lagos.

      Fighting corruption is not rent collection called loot recovery occupying the time of EFCC. It’s using sting operations to nip corruption in the bud. This nonsense and embarrassing practice has been going on at MM departure/entry sections and you can see that almost all those immigration personnel are from one language/section of the country and extort money from travelers with utmost impunity. It’s a shame.

        You are 100% correct about the background of these shameless corrupt Immigration/Customs officials. I always have bad experiences with them when I come into it leaving Nigeria. It’s either I am taking out too much Nigerian food or something else just to justify their reasons for exporting money from me or other international travelers.
