Edgal took charge as the Acting Police Commissioner in Lagos State on August 31, after a little controversy over the position.
The reversal of his position is coming few days after the police boss gave an update of ongoing investigations into the death of Tagbo Umueke, a friend of Davido.
Could he have pushed too hard in unravelling Tagbo's mysterious death?
He had told the press that the force had decided to address them because of the interest the issue was generating on social networks.
