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.
TheCable understands that Edgal Imohimi, the current commissioner was redeployed on Sunday, to the force headquarters in Abuja.
Sources told TheCable 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.
