Nigerians react as Nigerian symbol of Justice leans on stick



It's normal to see a statue of a woman in front of every Judicial building and all the courts in Nigeria.  The fact that she's a woman means she has motherly feelings. She's blindfolded, meaning she has no preference for one person over the other i.e she's not partial.  She's holding a sword in one hand and measuring scale on the other hand.   She quantifies your offense with the scale and uses the sword to punish you as appropriate, in a non partial way.

In modern day parlance, she is referred to as ‘Lady Justice’,  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.
Nigerians have however reacted to this.
