John mcafee poisoned; tells culprits: ‘you will soon understand the true meaning of wrath’
On the 22nd of June, 2018, John McAfee who is the founder of the eponymous antivirus company, shared a photo of himself admitted in the hospital on Twitter, mentioning that he had been poisoned.
What was the possible reason behind poisoning John McAfee?
A month before, John, who is the Cyber Security Pioneer, had spoken toThe Independent about how he feared for his life. He said,
“We are in a five-vehicle motorcade. All vehicles driven by ex-military special forces and filled to the brim with heavily-armed security personnel.
I purposely and publicly committed a felony this morning to call the SEC out [in the videos]. I’m mad as hell and I’m not taking any more s*** from corrupt-to-the-core government agencies.”
He had uploaded videos on YouTube about issues with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) which forced him to be on the run.
He also claimed earlier that violent cartels had attempted to kidnap him on many occasions in the past few years. Since then he had been living with his armed security at his fortified home in Lexington, Tennessee.
What exactly did John say?
On Friday, John had announced on his Twitter handle that his ‘incompetent enemies’ had poisoned him. He tweeted the following –
“I apologize for my three-day absence but I was unconscious for two days at the Vidant Medical Centre in North Carolina and just woke up.
My enemies managed to spike something that I ingested. However, I am more difficult to kill than anyone can possibly imagine. I am back.
And for those who did this – You will soon understand the true meaning of wrath.”
To a well-wisher, he said, “It takes more than poison, bullets or hanging to kill me. All three have been tried more than once.”
