A 49-year-old Grab driver has been arrested for allegedly issuing a death threat against presidential candidate Bongbong Marcos over Twitter.
The camp of the presidential bet filed a formal complaint against Michael Go on Wednesday, after the former wrote on a Twitter post that he was ‘annoyed’ and planned to ‘gun down’ Marcos if the caravan passes nearby his place.
“I was blocked by Marcos Jr. in 2016. Pakisabi mag ingat siya sa Tandang Sora QC. Pag dumaan siya dun babarilin ko siya di ako takot makulong. Hindi rin ako takot mamatay. Isang malaking karangalan ipaghigante mga kasama ko aktibista biktima ng martial law,” the tweet read.
It took 12 police officers to track down the driver with the help of village officials and peacekeeping officers in Barangay Sta. Lucia.
According to local reports, Go turned himself in when the officers arrived in his place.
