This might appear as a good move because of political equalization base on current prosecution you are doing and also pleasing political actors. Always weigh the possibility of proving the cases, though I concede, that these actions might restrain all like-minded individuals to refrain from such unguided statements."

Selikem Fieret also noted:

"Why invite and Rambo style arrest for others? Maybe you should prioritise developing your human resources on tactical policing and avoid upsetting large communities instead? The political joke is too much.
We are not in a police state but a democracy. If you want to arrest everyone, will there be space at Nsawam? The false news detection job is needless. Focus!"

Babs Ahmed Babs noted:

"Has been invited, really! As if he is attending a party meanwhile that is not the same Invitation given to others who didn't speak well. Such is life!"
