The Lagos State Police Command has denied reports milling round of the purported deployment of the state Police Commissioner, Abiodun Alabi.
Following this, the state Police Relations Officer has advised the public to disregard the story.
The command, in a statement by its spokesperson David Hundeyin said it was not true that a new police commissioner has been posted to Lagos.
The statement reads:
The Lagos State Police Command has 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 Abiodun Alabi. 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 Lagos
State updated whenever the need arises
