A 28-year old man is allegedly in the grips of the Ghana Police Service for threatening staff of TV3 over the just ended December 7 polls.
Saeed, a social media extremist, with the name Mujahid Bin Khalid on twitter in a series of tweet some days ago said the lives of TV3 staff were in danger adding that they would die like dogs.
He also described them as hypocrites.
“The hypocrites in TV3 will die like dogs, are your lives in danger but you don’t know,” his tweet reads.
With his threat on the EC, he noted the EC would be bombed this very year with or without the presidential candidate of the opposition National Democratic Congress,(NDC) , former President John Dramani Mahama as President.
“This year whether Mahama or not we will bomb EC.”
In another tweet, he noted that “Bomb will clear such a crowd who celebrates fraud election.”
