Singapore – There has been concern among netizens over what could have caused a man to vandalise the surroundings in Towner Road and start a fire in front of the Kallang Neighbourhood Police Post.

On Friday night (March 13), the police arrested a man who allegedly wrote “ISIS” and abusive words on the walls and started a fire in the vicinity of the police post. “Preliminary investigations indicated that he acted alone and it was not terrorism-related, but the act of a disgruntled person unhappy with perceived social inequality,” said the police.

In a video on All Singapore Stuff, the man can be heard shouting expletives about the Government and country.

Siao lang so angry with PAP and Lee Hsien Loong until he curse them and threaten their life before setting fire to NPP.
