Nigerians are reacting to photos of Joe Ajaero, the President of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), at the COP28 in Dubai.

Amidst the outrage over the high number of Nigeria’s delegates that attended the summit, some netizens expressed surprise after seeing Ajaero at the event.

This comes weeks after the NLC president was beaten and brutalized in Imo State by hoodlums whom he accused of being sponsored by the state government prior to the off-cycle election in the state.

The incident also led to a nationwide strike before the federal government intervened.

However, Ajaero’s photos from COP28 have got many Nigerians talking, alleging he was compensated for the incident at Imo State.
