Lagos state commissioner of police Imohimi Egdal has been relieved of his command and redeployed to Abuja.

Imohimi, who is said to be an ally of the incumbent Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, was “fired from Lagos” because he did not provide adequate security for the APC rally, which was held in Ikeja last week, according to TheCable.

A former chief security to the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, Kayode Egbetokun, was named the new commissioner of police in the state.

Imohimi was redeployed on Sunday to the force headquarters in Abuja.

At the rally, 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.

Egbetokun was also the commander of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS), Lagos, from 2005 to 2007.

The outgoing CP, Imohimi was deployed to Lagos state on August 31, 2017, after he served as the deputy commissioner of police in charge of Operations in the state.

His new role will now be in Abuja, where he is expected to head the explosive ordinance unit of the police force.
