A social media user, Mohammed Jammal with the handle @whitenigerian on X(formerly twitter) claims that the President of the Nigeria Labour Congress NLC, Joe Ajearo has been brutalised for a second time.
The claim, which recently went viral on the microblogging platform, has gained over 300 Thousand views and over 700 comments.
It would be recalled that on November 1 the NLC leader was attacked in Owerri the Imo State capital during a protest over alleged maltreatment of workers in the state.
However, the recent claim suggests that the labour leader has been brutalised again amid plans of an industrial action.
Accompanied with a photo, the claim reads: “this guy got beaten twice 💔”
NLC President, Ajearo has been brutalised for a second time.
Findings show that the claim is FALSE.
In verifying the claim, the image was subjected to Google lens and results show that the image is doctored.
Also, the labour leader was not captured with a bandage wrapped around his head at any point as indicated in the doctored image.
Further findings did not trace the claim to any credibility and reliable news sources, thereby invalidating the claim.
The claim that NLC President, Ajearo was brutalised again is FALSE, evidence shows that the image used is manipulated.
