It was gathered that Edgal, a crack crime buster 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 because the command’s boss was rated high.

As one of the 21st Century Commissioners of Police to be in charge of the Lagos State Police Command, Imohimi Edgal who was at the helm of affairs between September 2017 and March, 2019 is one cop many Lagos residents wouldn't forget in a hurry. To the bad guys in several criminal camps across the state, Edgal was a kill joy and great obstacle to their dare-devilish activities but to the great guys, he was a tough fighter who was able to pursue cultists, armed robbers, kidnappers, ritualists, child molesters, wife abusers and illicit drug dealers to the gate of hell.

The legacy of his robust policing in Lagos within the 18 months he held forth has continued to be remembered nostalgically .

Having served within the Lagos State Command over the years in several capacities and becoming the Deputy Commissioner of Police responsible of operations during Fatai Owoseni’s era because the Commissioner of Police, Edgal was ostensibly on a familiar terrain. 

At some point, he had the chance to hold brief for the commissioner in acting capacity. it had been during that period he led a team of crack detectives and operations men from the State Command to dismantle an emerging deadly gang of ritualists going by the name of Badoo.

The gang’s activities were already sending some residents of Ikorodu and its environs to their early graves as some helpless victims were crushed with some mystery stones to death mostly in the dark by members of the cult gang. 

At that point , there was an unconfirmed report that for every victim of the Badoo gang whose blood was soaked in white hanker-chief after being killed, the sum of N500,000 was paid by their sponsor. 

The spate of Badoo gang’s activities was escalating by the day and were fast extending beyond Ikorodu town and its environs, coming towards Lagos metropolis but Edgal’s operational astuteness combined with fearlessness became a significant obstacle to the blood suckers.
