AIG Alabi Takes Over Zone 2 Command

The new Assistant Inspector-General of Police in charge of Zone 2 Command, Nigeria Police, on Friday, 17th February, 2023 assumed office at the Zonal Headquarters, Onikan, Lagos.

He is AIG Sylvester Abiodun Alabi, the immediate past Commissioner of Police, Lagos state command. He replaced DIG Adeyinka Bode who is now in charge of Operations, Force Headquarters, Abuja.

Addressing newsmen after taking over the command, AIG Alabi said that having been in charge of Lagos State Command, what he has achieved in the last one without a major crisis would serve as an impetus to surmount every unforeseen challenge.

“I am going to replicate the same here as the AIG covering Lagos and Ogun states respectively to give the people a new lease of life.


On the skirmishes occasioned in some parts of Lagos following the new naira redesignation last Thursday, he said that situations like that do happen especially where people want to ventilate their anger. However, we would try to manage the situation, sustain and strengthen security in both states.

“We have deployed effectively to all financial institutions not only banks to ensure that hoodlums don’t take advantage of what is going on to attack banks. It is part of our statutory duty”, he concluded.

Present at the ceremony were the Board Member of the Lagos State Security Trust Fund (LSSTF), Dr. Ayodele Ogunsan, and senior management team of Zone 2 Command.
