The young man, whose bio reads that he is a Peter Obi supporter, said he had told a friend before now that Tinubu would burn down any court before the final judgment but his friend did not believe him. He wrote:

"Thank you BAT. You just made me won 150k this morning.
"I told my friend that you will burn down any of the Courts before the final judgement but my friend said it will not happen.
"Today you just prove me right at last.
"You people are always predictable."

It is, however, noteworthy that the Spokesperson of the Supreme Court, Festus Akande, blamed the fire incident on an electrical fault that emanated from one of the justices' chambers.

Meanwhile, previously reported that a section of the Supreme Court was gutted by fire on Monday.

This development was confirmed during the Arise TV breakfast show, "The Morning Show".

It was gathered that the fire affected the office of the three apex court judges. The cause of the fire outbreak is yet to be confirmed, but the Arise TV anchor, Reuben Abati, said:

"We don't know. The breaking news says it's an attack, so it must be investigated even on the surface of it. It's disturbing."
