“This move phases out the old era where the personal phone numbers of these strategic officers are used for official communication/assignments, resulting in a communication barrier whenever these officers are redeployed.
“With the new arrangement, numbers remain permanently attached to particular offices such that with the redeployment of the occupants of such officers, the phone numbers remain the same."

Furthermore, the police mouthpiece in Lagos noted that the commissioner of police, Adegoke Fayoade, took this step to provide improved access, quicker response times and enhanced communication for the good people of Lagos state.

Hundeyin noted that the police community relations committee (PCRC) of the Lagos state command, led by Apostle Kehinde Showemimo, supplied the desktop phones for the newly introduced phone.
