The Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, Fatai Owoseni has denied being removed from office.

He said he was not aware of the appointment of a new police commissioner for the state.

He maintained that he is still the Police commissioner in the state.

There were earlier reports that the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Kpotum Idris has appointed Edgal Imohimi, a Deputy Commissioner of Police, as the new Commissioner of Police, Lagos State Police Command.

But Owoseni in response to the report on Wednesday said news of appointment of a new police commissioner for the state was shocking to him.

He said he was yet to receive any directive regarding the posting of a new police commissioner in the State.

“When we get the information, we will let you know" he said.

This is about the third time that news of Owoseni’s replacement has turned out to be false

In January, there were reports that Owoseni had been replaced by Garuba Umar.

That report also turned out to be false.
