Aliko Dangote

Following the reports of 170 hostages being held by Jihadists at Radisson Blu hotel, Bamako Mali, social media was flooded with reports that Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote, was also caught up in the siege.

He just tweeted that he left the country yesterday.

The hotel is said to be the preferred hotel of most businessmen, dignitaries and expatriates in Mali.

Updates claim that the terrorists were said to have gained access to the hotel by arriving in diplomatic vehicles.

They also freed a handful of hostages who could recite the Koran.
