The Inspector-General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun, has appointed Fayoade Adegoke as the new Commissioner of Police for the Lagos State Command.
The redeployment was contained in a signal signed by the Force Secretary, AIG Olanrewaju Oladimeji, on Tuesday.
Adegoke will take over from Idowu Owohunwa, who had been promoted to the rank of Assistant Inspector-General of Police in charge of the Federal Criminal Investigation Department, Alagbon Ikoyi, Lagos.
Before his new posting, Adegoke was in charge of armament at the Force Headquarters in Abuja.
While serving in that capacity, Adegoke took a course at the Nigerian Institute of Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS) in Kuru, Jos, Plateau State, where he graduated alongside 96 distinguished Nigerians in the Executive Course 45.
