He later took on the role of PPRO at Zone 2 Headquarters in Onikan, Lagos from 2016 to 2020, further solidifying his reputation as a capable communicator.

Most recently, between 2020 and 2021, Adejobi assumed the position of PPRO for Lagos State Command, demonstrating his unwavering commitment to public service. He then ascended to the position of Deputy Force Public Relations Officer at Force Headquarters, Abuja, in 2021. His exemplary service culminated in his appointment as the Force Public Relations Officer before his reappointment to the role.

He is a proud member of esteemed organizations such as the Nigerian Institute of Public Relations, the International Public Relations Association, and the Pointman Leadership Institute in the United States.

Furthermore, his membership in the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and the Institute of Corporate Administration, Nigeria, underscores his commitment to excellence and global best practices.

Egbetokun has expressed his confidence in Adejobi’s ability to build upon past accomplishments and further enhance citizen-focused public relations through the media and targeted community engagements.
