According to the statement, Makinde took office on August 24 following a publication order dated August 17 from the NSCDC national headquarters, which took effect immediately.
He also indicated that the new Lagos commander replaced Commander Adeyinka Ayinla, who had also been posted to Edo.

After the development, Commander Makinde in a statement promised to justify the trust placed in him.
He also thanked Corps Commander General (CG) Abdulahi Gana for his kind gesture and added that he would work harder to further bridge the gap between the public and his agency.
Makinde advised the Command staff to always be obedient and warned that the command would not tolerate any acts of corruption and indiscipline on the part of its officers.
