NIGERIA – Barely a week after he resumed duty in Ogun State, the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has transferred the new Ogun State Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi to Akwa Ibom State.
Consequently, the Akwa Ibom police boss, Kenneth Ebrimson, is to assume duty in Ogun State to replace Imohimi.
This was contained in a police signal from the office of the Nigeria Police Force, on behalf of the Inspector General and dated November 22.
According to the signal, the posting, as ordered by the Inspector General of Police, is with immediate effect.
But in a dramatic twist, the duo were swapped, less down a week after they resumed duty in Ogun and Akwa Ibom.
Recall that Imohimi, less than 24 hours after he took charge of Ogun police command, ordered the officers in the state to resume to their original duty posts for a headcount. Read it here.
The CP also set up a complaint call centre with 10 hotlines through which the public can report any officer demanding money from them under any guise. Read it here.
The Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, could not be reached for comments at the time of filing this report.
However, a senior police source confirmed that Imohimi had truly been posted to Akwa Ibom.
