Lagos State ex-Commissioner of Police, Imohimi Edgal, and seven other commissioners of Police have been redeployed by the Inspector-General of Police, IGP, Mohammed Adamu.
Edgal, who after his removal from Lagosnine months ago resumed at the force headquarters, Abuja, has been redeployed by the Police boss to address the security challenges that were already brewing in Ogun State.
Others redeployed by Adamu were: Nkereuwem Akpan, Cross River State; Kenneth Ebrimson, Akwa-Ibom State; Habu Ahmadu, Kano State, Lawal Jimeta, Edo State; Philip Maku, Bauchi State, and Hakeem Odumosu; Lagos State.
From the signal sighted by The Guild on Thursday, it confirmed that they were redeployed by the IGP with mandates to immediately tackle the security challenges in their new posts.
Sources said that redeployment of Edgal to Ogun State was due to his cooperation with the Ogun state police command when he while serving as Lagos police commissioner.
Though, it would be recalled that his redeployment from Lagos over nine months ago was trailed by mild drama, as he refused to yield the seat to Kayode Egbetokun, who was redeployed to take over from him.
It was the second signal issued by Adamu that was able to uproot Edgal earlier this year from his plum post and was replaced by Mu’azu Zubairu, who has been promoted to Assistant Inspector General of Police, AIG.
