Antivirus software pioneer John McAfee has made comic comparisons with a Better Call Saul character known for his paranoia about electromagnetic pulses, after he bizarrely revealed that he was locked up in an aluminum foil room.

The 73-year-old, claiming to be wanted by the US government, was compared to the show's brother Chuck McGill, who despite a fertile lawyer believes he is suffering from a pseudo-disease called & # 39 ; electromagnetic sensitivity & # 39; .

McAfee has been paralyzed recently for his online offer and told Tuesday that he was hiding in Lithuania after he fled the Dominican Republic where the authorities arrested him and his wife for sailing a boat full of firearms.

Amused twitter users suggested that McAfee is suffering from the same & # 39; disease & # 39; like Chuck McGill, who regularly appeared on the screen in a space blanket.

He later updated his million followers with a selfie of him and his wife, Janice, tweeting: & # 39 ;. @ Theemrsmcafee and I in Lithuania at our secure location. The long arm of the corrupt US Department of Justice does not reach here & # 39 ;. The tweet placed its location as South San Francisco

He was not detained by the US government and the Dominican authorities allowed him to choose where he would be sent after ensuring that the United States had no active lawsuits or extradition requests for McAfee, his lawyer said.

But rather revealing that he was in Vilnius, Lithuania, McAfee wrote: & # 39; Sorry for the silence. @theemrsmcafee and I are now in Eastern Europe in an ultra-secure facility.

& # 39; We are currently out of reach of the corrupt elements of the (In-) Justice Department. We are healthy and safe. I've missed you. Will tell more later. & # 39;

& # 39; We will relax for a day or two and return to the fight against injustice wherever we find it. & # 39;

Only a few hours later, the tweet posted its location as South San Francisco, California.

The couple had been detained in the Dominican Republic with five others after being suspected of traveling on a yacht with high-caliber weapons, ammunition, and military-style equipment, officials said.

He was released on Wednesday and left the Dominican Republic with his wife on Thursday. They then had a stopover in Madrid before they landed in London and were then on their way to Lithuania.

There he claimed & # 39; DOJ and CIA kidnapping teams circled like vultures & # 39; but the pair was kept safe with multiple witnesses & # 39; and people & # 39; who slept on the floor of our hotel room for protection & # 39 ;.

He tweeted: & # 39; The bad guys never came close. We are now from England and on our way to complete safety. We will not be silenced. & # 39;

He had said before: & # 39; On the road again. The long arm of the US reaches us here in London. Thank goodness it's a weekend. The government bureaucracy paper is jammed until tomorrow morning. We have never been blocked. Will update you soon. & # 39;

After the Dominican authorities had ensured that the United States had no active lawsuits or extradition requests for McAfee, they let him choose where he would be sent, said lawyer Candido Simon and he chose London.

McAfee, born in 1945 on an American military base on British territory, has both nationalities and asked his Twitter followers on Friday if he should campaign to become a British Prime Minister.

McAfee is also looking for the Libertarian Party nomination for the US president in 2020, Reuters recently told in an interview that he could help Cuba defeat the US trade embargo by launching a cryptocurrency.

He developed early internet security software and has been sought by authorities in the US and Belize in the past.
