It appears that the supermassive black hole in the core of M87 is precessing very slightly at a fairly rapid rate around a polar normal line, which does not precess at any noticeable rate.
This is probably a residual from the collision & merger of the 2 or more giant elliptical galaxy core black holes that merged & created it. There may be a small addition of precessional motion as a result of collision with individual stars.
This is a different result from the primordial black hole grown in situ in the core of NGC 5128 (centaurus A), where the black hole is precessing in all 3 axes at a fairly slow rate.
