The Bureau of National Investigations has arrested a man who apparently ‘threatened’ that the President would fall down during this year’s Independence Day parade.
The man was arrested by police at a drinking bar in Dzorwulu where he passed the comments, and later handed him over to the National security.
The suspect was apparently boasting that the President would pass out on 6th March, and dared anyone listening to mark his words.
A ‘good Samaritan’ who overheard his words reported him to Police.
“People who overheard him reported him to the Airport Police who later handed him over to us.” A source at the BNI told the Daily Graphic.
“He occasionally referred to the President as “John” while speaking,”
The Bureau said they are taking the issue seriously, and are trying to uncover what sinister motives might have driven the man to make those comments.
It’s good to see National Security being so proactive in an issue, when cocaine is not involved. But with the location of this man when he made his statement, they’re probably dealing with an intoxicated loudmouth.
Or he’s just a prophet prophesying what he has seen. In which case, don’t shoot the messenger.
