Ghanaian movie star, John Dumelo, is saying the past few days have not been all that easy for him because a lot of anonymous people are threatening his life. His attackers, he noted, are not comfortable over his opinion he shared on social media about who would be sworn in as President of Ghana, come January 7, 2017.
“I keep on receiving threat messages from anonymous persons. They are threatening my life …so many things for making a statement. But I give everything to God”. “They are issuing the threats on social media, anonymous phone calls and things.”
On January 28, 2016, Dumelo shared a post on his twitter page announcing who he thinks would be crowned President of Ghana in the next general elections.
His statement however did not go down well with of a cross section of the Ghanaian populace. Just yesterday the NPP released a picture to back their claims that John Dumelo, met with Nana Akufo Addo, to lobby his way into the NPP’s campaign team.
In an interaction with Fiifi Banson on Anopa Kasapa on Kasapa 102.3 FM, Wednesday, as to whether he has reported the threat messages and phone calls he has been receiving to the Police, John Dumelo who was looking all calm replied,
“I think it has not gotten to a point of maybe security yet. I am a very security conscious person. Wherever I go I just have this security thing around me. I just don’t stay at a particular place at a time. The truth is that even most of the time I am not even in Ghana and when I am in Ghana people really don’t know where I live and people don’t know my movement and whereabouts. So, I take it very serious but at the same time I have a very security conscious mind. So, I think I will be okay for now”.
