JUST IN: Edgal To 'Step Down' As Lagos CP Ahead Of APC Primaries
The APC's governorship primaries in Lagos may be more than just an ordinary political affair as it has allegedly began to shake very high tables.
Unconfirmed reports suggest the Police Commissioner in Lagos, Imohimi Oluwole Edgal may be on his way to Abuja to receive fresh instructions.
This may also be connected to the APC's governorship primaries which holds on Tuesday, October 2 across local council areas.
A source within the ranks says this “quick intervention on the state of security in Lagos state is imperative as series of complaints have reached the police high command linking CP Edgal to some bias in favour of embattled Governor Ambode.
The Nigerian Police Force has allegedly issued a confidential directive asking Edgal to step down from his current office with immediate effect.
The Area Commander is to take charge of affairs of the command, under the supervision of Assistant Inspector General of Police Zone 2.
The leadership of the party in the state had expressed fears of having a successful and transparent primary with CP Edgal around as it has become an “open secret that he is a high school mate of the governor”, said a party leader.
Meanwhile, the following series of complaints which dogged some promotions by the Police Service Commission under Mr Mike Okiro, the new board is set to revisit the list with a view to correcting the anomalies.
This has caused panic amongst beneficiaries which Mr Edgal is alleged to be one. Word around the police circle is that should the PSC go ahead with its cleansing, some senior officers will be demoted.
