Journalist Receives Death Threats After Exposing Doctor Who Cut Oxygen Supply To Baby

The journalist who first broke news about the sad death of a nine-week-old baby after his life support system was deliberately disconnected by a doctor says his life is now in danger.

Speaking on the Morning Xpress on XYZ 93.1 Thursday, Mireku Bernard, revealed he has since been receiving death threats from some faceless people.

“I was threatened. I had a call from the hospital that I should be careful about the story that I am doing… Yes, I was threatened,” he told host of the programme, Neil-Armstrong Mortagbe.

Bernard, who reports for Kasoa-based Pink FM, also said the mother of the baby has also received similar threats which have compelled her to stop granting interviews on the incident.

Narrating the events, he said a nurse at the facility where the incident happened invited him over after a phone call and asked him to change his mobile phone number to stay safe.

According to the reporter, he was advised by the anonymous callers to stop granting further interviews to save his life, but he told the person “I am doing my work.”

He is yet to lodge a formal complaint with the Ghana Police Service.
