Trending! Nigerians react as Picture of Justice Symbol leaning on stick goes viral

This is probably on every social media news platform by now. It is the most trending embarrassment to Nigeria currently.

In front of every Judicial building and all the courts in Nigeria, you will see a statue or picture of a blind folded woman, with a sword in one hand, and scales in another.

She is referred to as ‘Lady Justice’ in modern day parlance, however she is the Roman Goddess ‘Justitia‘, who is equivalent to the Greek Goddess Dike.

Lady Justice has been pictured leaning on a stick for support in a photo that has now gone viral after it was shared by Nigerian Twitter user, Bolu. She captioned it “Even the symbol of justice in Nigeria is tired”…

Nigerian were enraged and engaged by the post. See some reactions below:
