SocialMediaTrends: Reaction trails CJN Ariwoola’s UK visit & Adeleke’s victory at Appeal Court



In what is generating heavy reactions on social media, Chief Justice Olukayode Ariwoola was allegedly seen in London claiming to be an elderly man with physical limitations in what was believed to be a covert setting up for a meeting with President-elect Bola Tinubu.

To further fuel the development, an image of the Chief Justice in a wheelchair was seen in an area alleged to be an airport.

Nigerians took to social media to express dissatisfaction with the development.

Recall that the presidential candidates of the Labor Party and the Peoples Democratic Party have taken to the tribunal to challenge the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to announce Bola Tinubu as president-elect.

However, another video appeared today showing the CJN returning from prayer in Nigeria.

Nigerians took to social media to put some thought into what could have happened.
