In the same vein, all members of the squad were relieved of their duty posts and have been directed to report to the Lagos state police headquarters for debriefing.

This strategising move became necessary for the squad with reports of unprofessional conducts of its personnel and corruption in the unit. The repositioning was also meant to revive the outfit, seen to be very key in the struggle against cultists and cultism in the state by infusing it with fresh blood for better service delivery.

Imohimi remarked that the same treatment awaits any other unit in the command that is working at cross purposes with the fundamental objectives of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF)

The commissioner added that area commanders, divisional police officers and head of departments must increase supervision of their men in order to ensure non violation of the police Standard Operating Procedure (SOP).
