Every day on the Nigerian Internet, there are people who keep our eyes glued to our phone screens as we read their rants, opinions, perspectives on political and social matters, etc.
Sometimes, they are just downright ridiculous. We make it our job to take down the names of these noisemakers.
Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo today ordered the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, to immediately overhaul the management and activities of the Special Anti-robbery Squad (SARS).
As expected, Nigerian Twitter, where the #ENDSARS campaign is most prominent have been reacting to the development and here’s our list for today:

Nice one. Segalink and the #EndSARS campaigners deserve commendation for their tireless efforts.
It just goes on remind us that things can actually change in this country, only if we remain relentless.

Don’t get it twisted. Whether it is “Overhaul” of SARS or a unit emerging from SARS that will be focused strictly on armed robbery and kidnapping, SARS as we currently know it is dead. That’s why we are celebrating. #EndSARS

Dear @theresa_may ,I humbly write on behalf of hard working Nigerian youths, Biko do not allow @MBuhari to come back. If possible grant him permanent visa. We're not doing again.

Buhari ordered Osinbajo to restructure SARS after how many months of #EndSars? Why didn’t he do it himself? Don’t piss me off please.
