“Should we reveal his identity or temper justice with as he has been begging for forgiveness since yesterday! Note he also hacked his Facebook and the email he uses in receiving notifications from banks! He’s only begging we cover his identity because he said it will Jeopardize his career in the Nollywood industry! Please what do y’all suggest we do in this regard!
