Apparently, the lobby at Radisson Blu Oslo can be a dangerous place. The Daily Mail reports that King Otumfo Osei Tutu II, who was visiting the Norwegian capital for a conference, had a suitcase full of crown jewels stolen from right under his nose in the lobby of the hotel, where rooms start at around $279/night.

Not too much else is known, save for the obvious fact the 62-year-old Ghanian king is pissed.

Though if it's any consolation, ex-Backstreet Boy Brian Littrell had, like, the exact same thing happen to him at a Marriott. And let's not forget the £1 million emerald ring that went "missing" from a Four Seasons bathroom.

These things happen!

Interestingly, a subsequent statement was released by King Otumfo's camp, explaining the theft was actually "not such a big deal" and that the only items really lost were a few rings and some headgear. We like to think of some dude in his one-bedroom apartment in Oslo, wearing all the jewels while watching a Netflix movie, eating a bowl of cereal. Because, really, what else do you do with a suitcase full of Ghanian royal jewels?

No comment from Radisson so far. Though we're guessing they're probably busy ramping up their CCTV network.
