Members of Ikeja Golf Club came out en-mass on Saturday in celebration of one of their own, the newly appointed Lagos State Police Commissioner, Mr Oluwole Edgar Imohimi.
The Police boss who came in company of some of his senior officials was welcomed by the Club Captain, Niyi Latinwo and some members of the Club’s board of Trustees.
In his welcome address, the Club Captain expressed his joy in having the Police boss in their midst, saying he believes very much that the golfer is ready to improve on the security situations in the state.
“We are proud to have you in our midst and we believe that you are ready to work for the safety of Lagos state. It is that belief that informed the Club’s decision to host you today”, Latinwo said.
Overwhelmed by the honour done on him, the Commissioner promised to do his best to keep everybody in Lagos, including his colleagues at Ikeja Golf Club safe.
“I am overwhelmed with joy by this hosting by my people” he said, adding, “as I stand before you today, I promise, with the support of my colleagues in the Police Force to keep the people of Lagos state, including golfers safe”.
While urging Lagosians to be watchful, Imohimi said, his strategy for combating crime in Lagos is one that involves everybody.
“What I am bringing to Lagos is not new, what is different however is the strategy. We are trying to re-invigorate community policing. We know the Police can’t do it all alone. So we will work with Lagosians, and jointly we will solve the security challenges in Lagos”, the Police boss promised.
He listed Cultism and Rape as some of the crimes to be dealt with in Lagos. He also promised to deal with the unprofessional conduct of his men.
