BlazeNewz gathered that officers and men of the Armed Forces across the country received news of the ex-military heads’ departure with joy.
Citing insecurity, most Nigerians, including stalwarts of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), repeatedly urged Buhari to remove the Service Chiefs.
The Nigerian leader appointed the quartet in July 2015.
In December, a former Senator, Rufai Hanga, said Buhari refused to let them go because he was afraid of a coup.
