I’ll dine with the devil to ensure Lagos is safe – New Lagos CP

New Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Edgar Imohimi on Tuesday said he is ready to dine with the devil with a long spoon to ensure that Lagosians live in peace and happiness.

Imohimi spoke when he visited Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode at the State House, Ikeja, Lagos, Southwest Nigeria.

According to him, “I told my officers and men that my passion for this assignment means that if I have to dine with the devil with a long spoon to ensure that Lagosians live in peace and happiness, I will do so.”

The commissioner stated that his policing plan for Lagos State was entirely aimed at making the state the safest city to live and do business in the continent of Africa, saying that “it is based on the philosophy of community policing and community safety partnership.”

“I intend to partner with everybody to ensure that Lagos is secured. Lagos is a cosmopolitan city, the issue of security is dynamic and of course, policing must also be dynamic, tomorrow (Wednesday), I would be rolling out my policing plan to achieve this. I want to thank the Lagos State Government for all the support they have been giving to the police.

“Without support both in terms of equipment, in terms of advocacy, there is no way the police would have been able to achieve what they have achieved within the short span of this administration of the incumbent governor. I appeal to his Excellency that that cooperation should continue.

“I want to assure His Excellency that during my own watch, he will have no cause for complaint or concern. We would serve the people of Lagos with all our heart and with all our might,” he said.
Imohimi warned criminals and hoodlums that it would not be business as usual as the police would fish them out and prosecute them.

“I also use this opportunity to tell my colleagues here and I hope they would pass the information to their subordinates, issues of human right abuses, corruption, indiscipline generally, it would no longer be a slap on the wrist, the full weight of the law and police regulations would be meted out on anybody found wanting during my watch,” he warned.
