Police are following up reports of a ‘threatening’ social media post on an account linked to Daniel Ibrahim, the son of nightclub figure John Ibrahim.
An image of the Daily Telegraph newspaper was temporarily posted on Sunday to one of the Instagram accounts said to be used by Ibrahim who goes by the name Daniel Taylor.
In the image, Detective Chief Inspector Darren Beeche is pictured alongside an article about the anti-bikie squad Strike Force Raptor’s history and its future in the fight against organised crime.

Text overlayed on the image read ‘Without a gun and a badge what do you got? Sucker in a uniform waitin (sic) to get shot’. The line appears to be a lyric from U.S. rap band, N.W.A’s song, ‘F*** Tha Police’.
The NSW Police Force told AAP they were looking into the social media posts.
‘NSW Police Force is aware of a number of posts threatening officers on social media,’ a spokeswoman said.
