    Seriously BN, you should learn to filter some information, why on earth would you broadcast to the whole world the hotel he is staying? not putting his security in consideration??? you are putting him at risk, however you chose to look at it…do the needful…you can be privileged to have some information but you don’t necessarily have to broadcast it to the whole world, you could still let us know without stating where he is lodged.

      That is my point exactly and you know the security situation in the country, it was very WRONG of you the announce the hotel he ll be staying. I hope they make a last minute change of hotel for him abeg. I no fit shout o. BN, no try am next time o

    Bella, i must say i really like how you guys listen to your readers and viewers. this i mean by changing the name of the hotel…and others that i have noticed. You lot are showing humility and ability to learn/grow as a lifestyle brand.. because you take to constructive criticism. Also well done for posting comments that may be harsh too. Una dey try!..Godbless…lol
