Twitter is agog with reactions from Nigerians after some lawyers were caught by the camera sleeping during the ongoing ruling by the presidential election petition tribunal in the petition brought by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
While some of the netizens made several jokes of the picture, others took it seriously and stressed that the footages symbolise the laxity in Nigeria’s Judiciary sector.

It is very evident. They are passing through sleepless nights. The Tribunal Judges are equally not sleeping. The judges sleepless nights are headaches coming from the undisputed evidences presented by Atiku's lawyers. No mago mago. E no possible. https://t.co/Lcgxyhmv2d
