My resolve is unshakeable – Bulldog says after NIB experience
Artiste manager, Bulldog has stated that despite his ordeal at the National Investigative Bureau (NIB), his resolve remains unshaken.
“My resolve is unshakable with God as my strength,” he said
The manager born, Lawrence Nana Asiamah Hanson, was picked by officials of the National Investigative Bureau (NIB), formerly Bureau of National Investigations (BNI), for comments he made on TV.
Even though the NIB has not assigned any official reason for his arrest, many have speculated it could be because of his comments against President Akufo-Addo on UTV’s entertainment show, United Showbiz.
On the show, Bulldog made claims that President Akufo-Addo would not complete his second term if he did not pay lockup funds of customers of the defunct gold dealership company, Menzgold.
The artist manager later retracted his comments but was picked up by the NIB on Monday, January 11, 2020, and granted bail on Thursday, January 14, 2020.
He has released a statement after his bail, expressing appreciation to some personalities for their support.
He also commended the NIB and Ghana Police Service for their professionalism even while indicating that he had been detained in the roughest and toughest cell in Ghana.
This is not Bulldog’s first brush with the law; in 2014, he was arrested for his involvement in the death of Fennec Okyere, former manager of rapper Kwaw Kese.
He had apparently threatened Fennec prior to his death.
He was finally discharged by the Accra Central District Court in 2018.
Below is his full statement:
