Artiste Manager, Lawrence Nana Asiamah Hanson, known in the showbiz industry as Bulldog, has been granted bail by an Accra Circuit Court where he was arraigned for threatening the President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
He was granted to a GH₵70,000.00 bail on Wednesday, January 13, 2021.
He is to provide two sureties as part of the bail conditions meted out to him.
Bulldog was arrested on Monday evening, January 11, 2021, by operatives of the NIB following his threatened comments on United Television (UTV) Showbiz programme hosted by Nana Ama MacBrown.
In a comment on the show, Bulldog said the President will not complete his four-year 2nd term if he fails to pay customers of the defunct investment firm, Menzgold.
“If the money doesn’t come, Nana Addo will not finish his four years, I am telling you…like he no go finish his four years…,” he threatened.
When Afia Schwarzenegger who was also a guest on the show tried to draw his attention to the seriousness of his statement, Bulldog asked her to ‘Shut up’.
Bulldog who was described as part of the NAM babies on the show said he cared less about the threat insisting NAM 1 was doing a genuine business, hence, did not deserve that treatment.
He later on the show, retracted his comments, indicating that there was no way he would threaten the President but rather calling for the customers of Menzgold to be paid.
