Shatta Wale’s manager Bulldog, known in private life as Lawrence Nana Asiamah, has been reportedly arrested by operatives of the National Intelligence Bureau (NIB) which was until recently known as Bureau of National Investigations (BNI).
Bulldog’s arrest is in connection with threatening statements he made about President Nana Akufo-Addo on Nana Ama McBrown’s United Showbiz on UTV on Saturday, January 9, 2021.
According to Highlife music legend Rex Omar who confirmed the arrest of Bulldog saying his information indicates that some men from the presidency went to arrest Bulldog and dump him at the BNI.
Rex Omar further stated that Bulldog’s lawyer was currently at the officers of the ‘BNI’ and they seem not to know why the artiste manager has been brought into their custody.
It will be recalled that the former A & R manager for Zylofon during a discussion on McBrown’s show stated that Akufo-Addo will run away and will not be able to finish his four-year term if he refuses to pay Menzgold customers.
For Bulldog, once the government had caused the collapse of Menzgold, it was its responsibility to settle customers. His comments were taken as a threat to the president by many including Afia Schwarzenegger who was a co-panellist on the show. A lot of Ghanaians took to social media to blast Bulldog with some even calling for his arrest.
