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.
