Corruption dismissals: sufficient?

A Nigerian public interest organization is calling for the criminal prosecution of 38 senior Nigerian officers who were sacked for corruption. Details here.
The Human Rights and Anti-Corruption Advocacy has called for the prosecution of the 38 officers that were sacked by the military. 
The human rights group also said the military officers’ properties should be seized and their accounts blocked. 
They made this known during a peaceful protest staged at the Abuja office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). 
They said “We are calling for the prosecution of those sacked military officers on charges of corruption, as well as confiscating of their properties and freezing of their accounts in accordance with the law."
