Some Nigerians have taken to Twitter, to express their views about the sudden termination of the appointment of Mohammed Adamu as the Inspector-General of Police, IGP, on Tuesday, by President Muhammadu Buhari.
President Buhari replaced Adamu with Usman Alkali Baba, as the new Acting IGP, earlier today.
Adamu was inspecting the havoc wreaked on the Headquarters of the Imo State Police Command, when the news of his sack broke.
Below are some reactions from Twitter:
