I Didn't Authorize The Demotion Of The Lagos State Police Boss ---- Mike Okiro.

Imohimi Edgal.
Dr. Mike Okiro, The Chairman of the Police Service Commission, has come out to disown a letter from the commission purportedly demoting the Lagos State acting Commissioner of Police, Imohimi Edgal to Deputy Commissioner of Police.

He stated that the letter was not authorized by him and should be ignored, stating that the Commission’s Permanent Secretary, Musa Istifanus wrote to the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris about the demotion of Edgal to his former rank of DCP and that the letter had generated confusion and consternation within the leadership of the police and among concerned stakeholders.

But Okiro in a telephone interview with the PUNCH said he had told the IG to ignore the letter.

“The letter was not authorised by the commission; Istifanus did not write on my behalf. We read the letter too like everybody and I have told the IG to ignore it. The letter was not authorized at all. I would meet with Istifanus about it and find out how the letter came about,” he said.

From the PUNCH.
