Nigerians have taken to Twitter to express their views about the termination of the appointment of Mohammed Adamu as Inspector General of Police.
President Muhammadu Buhari replaced Adamu with Usman Alkali Baba on Tuesday afternoon.
Adamu was inspecting the havoc wreaked on the headquarters of the Imo State Police Command when the news of the termination of his appointment broke.
In February, his appointment had been extended by three months but he had only spent two months and three days of that period when he was relieved of duty.
Below are some Twitter reactions:
Abi now . Very funny country , on assignment and removed from there. My country Nigeria.

Buhari is in London, IGP Adamu went to Owerri to blow big grammar only to come back to Abuja as a former IGP.

I doubt if Buhari is aware of this update. Someone who fought tooth and nail to keep Ádámù as IGP despite critics.
Perhaps Adamu wasn't tough enough on IPOB https://t.co/XjPGP4Z4vw

Adamu arrives Imo as the IGP over the attack on Police &Prison facilities.
While he was busy talking tough on how he will kill IPOB/ESN operatives, Buhari fired him &appoint Usman Alkali Baba to replace him.

Our dear former IG was issuing orders in Imo and our dear Abuja 01 decided to remove the rug from his feet 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣.
I wish Fmr IGP Adamu well and welcome acting IG Usman Baba.
Hoping to see more deep rooted police reforms and personnel motivation.
