According to the actor, he has been threatened to death and had business deals cancelled all because he declared his support for President John Mahama but he still stands by his decision and will continue to support the good works of the Mahama-led government.
On December 6 2016, He took to his Facebook page and wrote:
“I have been insulted, threatened with death, accused wrongly, framed up and thrown at with stones. I have had endorsement deals canceled and business deals sabotaged. My crime; I support the Ndc. That’s my only crime.
“You insult me because I dream big, maybe you dream small. You insult me because I think Big, maybe you think too small. I’m glad I’m different and I’m glad millions of Ghanaians are different. Millions of Ghanaians are afraid to come out and say they support the Ndc because they fear victimization.
“I’m not afraid. I fear no one but the God i serve. You want to threaten me because I’m speaking on behalf of millions of voiceless Ghanaians who can see the good works of President John Mahama? Their voice is in their thumb and it will speak on Dec 7th for JDM…..NPP, dont let the election results surprise you. My name is John Dumelo and I’m voting for JDM. #toaso”
Fast Foward to March 24th 2017, its all about JOHN DUMELO and the STATE CAR.
National Security operatives have caught popular movie actor John Dumelo with a vehicle belonging to the state and retrieved it from a spraying shop.
Dumelo was allegedly attempting to conceal the identity of the black V8 Toyota Land Cruiser with registration GE 8118 –16 when the operatives pounced on it at a garage at Abelemkpe in Accra where it had purportedly been sent for re-spraying.
