The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has explained why skit maker Sunday Joshua Martins, better known as De General was arrested.
NDLEA spokesperson, Femi Babafemi, in a statement said De General was arrested in the early hours of Wednesday, January 12, 2022 following the raid of a notorious drug joint at Orchid Estate, Lekki area of Lagos state.
According to him, “Acting on credible intelligence, narcotic officers stormed the dr#g joint in the estate, where three suspects were arrested with illicit drugs including 200 sachets of 225mg Tramadol and 1.5kilograms of cannabis sativa. In the course of the operation, some persons including the suspected dealer ran away with bags suspected to contain exhibits.
A trail showed they ran into De General’s house. 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 videos while the search is being made, which the officers 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. In his confessional statement in custody, the suspect admitted ownership of the drugs recovered from his house.”
