The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has revealed why it arrested popular Nigerian skit maker, Sunday Martins, known professionally as De General.
Celebrity-profile earlier reported that NDLEA Officers invaded comedian De General’s house in the middle of the night in Lagos State on Wednesday, January 12.
A video that captures the moment NDLEA officials made the arrest on popular Instagram skit maker also surfaced online.
In the said video, the officials of the agency were seen trying to arrest the skit maker. While resisting arrest, the De General was heard saying that he knows his fundamental human right.
Speaking with Daily Trust, the spokesman of the NDLEA, Femi Babafemi, said the comedian was arrested for drug-related issues.
“A trail showed they ran into a house located at 2B Saula Akinlolu way, Orchid Estate, which is the residence of 22-year-old Sunday Joshua (aka De-General). The young men started to make noise to prevent a search.
“The operatives introduced themselves as officers of NDLEA and submitted themselves for search before entry. This was done and a search was conducted. The search led to the recovery of drug exhibits including cannabis Sativa; Tramadol 225mg, and some paraphernalia for drug use. This was after the suspect had requested to record on video the search, which the officers out of a sense of civility allowed.
“The video trending on social media was the moment the suspect and his friends decided to disrupt the bid to conduct a search of the house,”
