The Commissioner of Police newly appointed to take charge of the Federal Special Anti-robbery Squad (FSARS), CP Imohimi Edgal, upon resumption has released special hotlines, calling in citizens to report excesses of operatives of the unit across the country.
The complaint hot lines are: 08121226468, 08081911644, 09095097307, 08055911306 and 08062856290.
It was gathered that Edgal, a professional in crime busting and control was posted to the Federal SARS by the Inspector General of Police to reposition the outfit with a view of tackling violent crimes across the country. Edgal’s breakthrough in crimes during his time as the Lagos State command’s boss was rated high.
Imohimi Edgal who was at the helm of affairs between September 2017 and March, 2019 is one officer many Lagos residents would not forget in a hurry. To the guys who have strong affinity for crime in different ccamps across the state, Edgal was a great obstacle to their dare-devilish activities but to the good guys, he was a hard fighter who was ready to pursue cultists, armed robbers, kidnappers, ritualists, child molesters, wife abusers and illicit drug dealers to the gate of hell.
The legacy of his professional conduct of policing in Lagos within the 18 months he held sway has kept him dearly in the heart of the .
Having served in the Lagos State Command over the years in different capacities and becoming the Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of operations during Fatai Owoseni’s era as the Commissioner of Police. At some point, he had the opportunity to hold brief for the commissioner in acting capacity. It was during that period he led a team of crack detectives and men of the operative from the State Command to dismantle an emerging deadly gang of ritualists going by the name of Badoo.
Edgal, has made a professional name for himself, the expectations from well meaning Nigerian are high, going by his achievement and pedigree. Nigerians earlier want FSARS disbanded completely, maybe with CP Edgal there might be a new level of trust again for the Police department or unit.
