A video of a young Nigerian boy entering a hotel accompanied by an underage girl has ignited a storm of controversy on social media platforms.
The clip, which quickly went viral after being shared by a TikToker, has raised concerns about the access of underage individuals to hotel facilities.
As a result, many netizens are calling for stricter measures to prevent such incidents from occurring in the future.
The video, lasting 49 seconds, shows the girl’s face concealed with an emoji to protect her identity.
The boy and the girl were captured interacting with the hotel’s receptionist before proceeding to the rooms. At one point, the boy was seen placing his hand around the girl’s neck, which further fueled the outrage among viewers.
The public reaction to the video has been one of anger and frustration, with social media users expressing their disappointment in the hotel management for allowing young guests to enter without proper verification.
In response to the incident, several netizens have suggested the implementation of a National Identification Number (NIN) requirement for hotel guests as a means to verify their age and prevent underage individuals from entering.
