Following the impeachment of the former Secretary to the Government, Babachir Lawal and former boss of the National Intelligence Agency, Ayodele Oke, Nigerians have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts.
Both top officials were relieved of their duties after widespread public outcry.
Follow the development, President Buhari asked the anti-graft agency, EFCC to proceed with investigation of Messrs. Lawal and Oke.
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, also registered their grievances and demanded the impeachment of President Buhari.
Mr. Lawal has since been replaced by Boss Mustapha.

Good news, but it shouldn't end with sacking, Babachir Lawal should be prosecuted accordingly https://t.co/rFg3BibjG5

Doesn't Babachir Lawal sack without prosecution mean "settlement" after an apprenticeship? With the alleged over N200m he stole? pic.twitter.com/siqk7zf5Bq

Since we can't hear anything about His prosecution, does it mean that Babachir Lawal is free to go & enjoy the over N200m he stole? pic.twitter.com/IUNgrcetm9

Babachir Lawal's case will likely follow the normal routine:
-Sweep under the carpet
-Free man pic.twitter.com/KN0qIe0nNH

On Babachir Lawal and Amb. Ayo Oke:
Those who ask the question of what next?
The President has taken the administrative action. All other actions will be taken by relevant government agencies.

The corruption in this country is too much. Even "Babachir" Lawal that was sacked reminds me of "Abacha".
Just look at their names. pic.twitter.com/DKVYCthDBe

"Boss Mustapha is Babachir Lawal’s first cousin"
Why didn't you say he's also from Adamawa, NE too. Old Egbere!

If they don't recover N200 million from Babachir Lawal and commence immediate prosecution of him & Ayo Oke, then it's retirement not sack.

The Era of sacking and go home must stop. We must still prevail on @MBuhari to ensure the prosecution of Babachir Lawal. The time is NOW.

The intention of the termination of Babachir Lawal's appointment is to distract Nigerians from Maina's reinstatement and escape scandal.

Buhari ordered the arrest of Dasuki but he can't order the arrest of Babachir Lawal.
Interesting time we live in.

Only explanation for the refusal of Buhari to sanction the immediate prosecution of Babachir Lawal & Oke is that the president is corrupt.

Am I the only one who has noticed that there is no instruction for security agencies to arrest & prosecute Babachir Lawal & Ayo Oke? https://t.co/Ml6KeJDFU7

Has the FG handed over Babachir Lawal's case file to the EFCC for more work & prosecution? They need to clarify this. That sack isn't ENOUGH

When you realise that Babachir Lawal stole from homeless IDPs & used them as an excuse to syphon over N200m, yet He is still a free man pic.twitter.com/qRzAOmY6Po
