Artiste “Nitro” Set Bail for Social Media Threats

Shikell 'Cross Di Nitro' Nunez

After seven nights in lock down at the Belize Central Prison, twenty-four-year-old Shikell Nunez, aka “Cross Di Nitro,” is out on bail granted to him by Supreme Court judge, Denis Hanomansingh in the sum of five thousand dollars. Police say Nitro made a four-minute and forty-one second video and went live with it on social media. The video was viewed by the GSU commander who felt members of the unit and their families were being threatened.  While bail was granted, there are conditions imposed on him.  Nitro will have to report to the Mahogany Street police station every Friday effective November tenth 2017 until the case is disposed of. He also has to reappear in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court on his next court date and surrender all his travelling documents to the clerk of court as well as not to interfere with any of the prosecution witnesses.   On October twenty-six, 2017 he was charged with threat of death. At the time, he pleaded not guilty, but admitted to making the video claiming he was frustrated after the life of his Manager, Kenneth “Big Tom” Flowers was allegedly threatened. Nitro says he looks up to Flowers as a father figure.
