Bimbilla War-monger Nabbed By Security Agencies Over Comments on Social Media
Social media platforms such as Facebook and WhatsApp are now some of the accessible means of communication worldwide. Youth mostly use these two major social media platforms to do anything that comes to their minds. While some use it to advertise and market their products, connect people of different backgrounds, connect friends, preach their religious faith, learn current affairs and search for job and educational opportunities, others use it to incite violent and propagate their bad character or bad manners.
A young man, Ibrahim Mohammed, a native and a resident of Bimbilla who operates a fictitious Facebook account with the name: Bossu Yaaro and kept his current town and Region as Tema and Greater Accra respectively was however exposed and invited before the Bimbilla municipal security council (MUSEC) after a report was made about his abusive and violent comments in a Facebook post by another user.
Bossu Yaaro whose real name is Ibrahim Mohammed, commented on a publication link by myjoyonline.com and shared by one Lipila Augustine Bindayi entitled: Defense Minister Urged to step down from Cheriponi peace process”. In his comments, Bossu Yaaro exhibited his hatred for Konkomba Ethnic group (Ethnocentric comments) in statements such as “we don’t want Kokombas anymore in Ghana” if he didn’t step down we will kill all the kokombas in Ghana”, “did you have paramountcy” “who is your founder” “Kokombas are nonliving things”, “the day before yesterday when and kill 4 kokombas in our place” “they are animals”.
One of the Facebook users by name Njonaan Ab.Nlenki who also replied to his comment by writing: “You went and killed?” Yaaro responded to this reply by issuing threats on him, his replies were: “Njonaan Ab.Nlenki you can run but you can hid”, “am monitoring you ok” There are other reports of how the Bossu Yaaro guy attacks and uses abusive words on others on the social media because he feels that his true identity is hidden.
Based on this he was reported to the MUSEC and the Police by one of the Facebook users he threatened and security intelligent were employed to invite him.
He was however detained in police custody and granted bail, he was issued a warning letter and made a sign a bond of good behavior.
Bimbilla has experienced ethnic and chieftaincy crises over decades now and most the triggers are now on Facebook with fictitious accounts and causing confusions.
