Confusion as two police commissioners emerge in Lagos

The Lagos Police Command was thrown into confusion on Wednesday as two Commissioners of Police emerged in the command.

Earlier in the day, it was gathered that Edgar Imohimi, a Deputy Commissioner of Police, had been appointed as the new Commissioner of Police to replace Fatai Owoseni, who had been in the position for two years.

It was gathered that Owoseni would assume the post of Commissioner of Police in Charge of Administration at the Force Headquarters in Abuja.

But Owoseni, later in the day, said he was not aware of the appointment of a new police commissioner for the state.

Owoseni told the Newsmen that he had yet to receive any directive on any posting or the fact that there was a new commissioner in the state.

“When we get the information, we will let you know,” Owoseni said.

Newsmen also reported that  Owoseni, on Wednesday, spoke at a conference on security at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Idi Araba, in his capacity as Lagos State police commissioner.

Neither the Force Public Relations Officer, Moshood Jimoh, nor the state command spokeman, Olarinde Famous-Cole, picked their calls.
