The BNI revealed in a statement that the two Montie FM panelists do not have the capability of hurting the judges as they threatened
Had they issued mere empty threats? It happens that the BNI after their investigations did not find anything incriminating about the embattled Montie FM panelists. The bureau has gone ahead to release a statement to that effect.
The BNI revealed in their statement that the two Montie FM panelists Alistair Nelson and Godwin Ako Gunn, who threatened the lives of judges in the country are actually harmless, and do not have the capability of hurting the judges as they threatened.
It was also revealed that during the interrogation, the two suspects acknowledged that their remarks were regrettable and unfortunate. Checks by the BNI further revealed that the panelists made those comments in a mere show of “needless bravado”.
The panelists, Alistar Nelson and Godwin Ako Gunn, during a current affairs programme on Accra based Montie FM, threatened to deal with Supreme Court and High Court Judges. They threatened to ‘finish’ them if they made any judgement against the Electoral Commission in the suit challenging the validity of the current voters’ register. One of them had gone further to say that he knows the residence of the judges, in case chaos ensues after the judgement.
The BNI reportedly picked up the duo following complaints from judicial stakeholders especially the Ghana Bar Association (GBA). The Bureau has explained that from its investigations, the two were only bluffing, and did not mean to effect what they had said. Notwithstanding its discovery, the bureau has said investigations are still ongoing and that the suspects report three times a week.
The BNI in the statement also pointed out that several media outlets have imbibed the habit of rendering outright insults, as well as being bitter and abusive in their remarks. It equally hinted at possible measures it will take to control the situation.
