be_ceee; Whenever Nigerians jubilate like this, know someone who makes them do the right thing has been removed

emmy_ogon; This man is the best IGP thus far. He was strict, disciplined and publicly prosecuted erring and ev!l officers. That’s why they don’t like him!

ezinnestella; I think he did a good job. There’s so much less police brutality in Abuja compared to other places

ayzne_; Happy for them… this is what happened when my boss was moved to another unit 😂

estherwhytebassey; They’re happy because he was sacking police officers who were caught harassing young people and he was disciplined.

rotimi_egbewunmi; The outgoing IGP was an exceptional man. He definitely instilled discipline in the police force and limit their shenanigans. When you see Nigerians in the civil service celebrate an exit like this, it means he never condole their excesses.
