NAN reports that the Zone is in – charge of the operations in Lagos – state and Ogun.
According to the ACG, the redeployment was a normal routine in the service.
“Reporters have been calling me to find out the major reason for the removal. They asked if they were removed because they were involved in some sharp practices.
“All I can say for now is that, it is a regular routine for the NIS to redeploy its officers. There is nothing bad in redeployment. As other events unfold, the service will update Nigerians,” she said.
