A 24-year-old man was arrested for sending out death threats against NGT48 member Yuka Ogina.
The suspect faxed the death threat to news outlets and Niigata government offices.
HoriPro, the agency that represents Ogino, has filed a lawsuit against the suspect and will be seeking strict punishment against him.
The death threat comes days after Maho Yamaguchi graduated from the NGT48. The group continues to face criticism and backlash for the way it handled the assault against her.
