She also made another post with a montage of the same photo alluding to Atiku.

A quick search on google would reveal that the photo in question has been in circulation as far back as 2017.

One of such early use of the photo was by a blog  in a post “This is how actress Ruth Eze and her friends celebrated their Valentine’s Day (Photos)” which alluded that the actress distributed it to indigent persons to celebrate 2017 valentine day.

Also the photo surfaced in several post on popular Nigerian forum Nairaland,  In one of such posts, the photo was screengrabbed from @temconnect11 account which had a caption saying how food should be served at a party

 

Was the photo alleged by Onochie from Atiku’s Sokoto presidential campaign?

Answer: FALSE, because the photo has been in circulation several months before his rally.
