Following the revelation, Nigerians have used the microblogging platform Twitter to express their opinions on the situation.

While some people reacted disbelief, others argued that nothing should be taken for granted when it comes to Nigerian politicians and advocated for a thorough inquiry, pointing out that doing so would reveal much more nefarious information.
