No new CP in Lagos command – PPRO

The Lagos State Police Command on Friday refuted the claim that a new Commissioner of Police has been deployed to take over the security affairs in the state.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, who confirmed the development in a statement, said the news in circulation that a new CP had taken over the command was false.

He explained that the command had been inundated with requests for clarification on the status of the commissioner of police in the command.

“We wish to state categorically that the Commissioner of Police in Lagos State is still
CP Abiodun Alabi, fdc, mnim, psc.

“For the avoidance of doubt, no Commissioner of Police has been posted to Lagos State. Members of the public are therefore urged to disregard fake news making the rounds that a new Commissioner of Police has been deployed to Lagos State Police Command.

“It is hoped that this clarification would halt the barrage of calls to officers of the command which has resulted in needless distraction and waste of valuable time.

“The Lagos State Police Command will keep residents and the good people of the state updated whenever the need arises,” Hundeyin said.
