After Lawrence Asiamah Hanson aka Bulldog was picked by the BNI division of the Ghana Police Service yesterday, Ghanaians and party faithful have either reacted with joy or disappointment.
While some push for his immediate release with the argument that people do say more outrageous things and go scot-free, others are demanding that the artiste manager of Shatta Wale is punished severely.
Prominent amongst people pushing for his punishment is Ghanaian YouTuber and Content Creator Kwadwo Sheldon. He has joined like-minded individuals who believe Bulldog’s unsavoury utterances against President Akufo-Addo has become too much to be ignored and as such should be punished to serve as a lesson.
Releasing previous videos which give an account of Bulldog verbally abusing the president, Kwadwo Sheldon says he hopes and believes he (Bulldog) is sentenced to 6 years imprisonment. For him and others who think so, they believe this will restore some level of reverence to the presidency and guard the words and actions of the citizenry.
The hashtag (#PunishBullDog) is trending on Twitter because some Ghanaians are calling on the authorities not to allow Bulldog to leave freely without being punished.
