Dino, who did not exclude himself from the warning , said the housing segregation between the poor and the elite makes them vulnerable. He mentioned locations such as Ikoyi, Banana, Maitama, Asokoro and so on as places reserved for the rich.
“I am afraid of the revenge of the poor, It happened in Russia, France and recently in Sudan. It can happen in Nigeria. Housing segregation put us the elite in jeopardy. Ikoyi, Banana, Maitama, Asokoro etc. Our leaders + me beware of violent revolution. Perilous times loading”.
