Police arrested a 24-year-old male on Monday for allegedly issuing a death threat to NGT48 idol group member Yuka Ogino.
The police arrested the suspect, Kazuki Dōmoto, after he allegedly sent a letter by fax to a news organization on May 9 that indicated that he was planning to kill Ogino. The police stated that Dōmoto admitted to sending the letter, but denied any intention of killing Ogino.
NGT48 is a sister group of the AKB48 idol group based in Niigata prefecture, and it launched in 2015. NGT48 members Maho Yamaguchi, Riko Sugahara, and Rena Hasegawa graduated from the group on Saturday, months after Yamaguchi commented in January on her alleged assault in December.
