A new development of the arrest of Instagram comedian De General has emerged, per a report published by Insablog9ja.
NDLEA spokesperson, Femi Babafemi, in a statement said the 22-year-old was arrested in the early hours of Wednesday, January 12, 2022, following the raid of a notorious dr*g joint at Orchid Estate, Lekki area of Lagos state.
He narrated, “Acting on credible intelligence, narcotic officers stormed the dr#g joint in the estate, where three suspects were arrested with illicit dr#gs 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 dr#g exhibits including cannabis sativa; Tramadol 225mg, and some paraphernalia for dr#g use. This was after the suspect had requested to record on video the search, which the officers out of 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. In his confessional statement in custody, the suspect admitted ownership of the dr#gs recovered from his house.”
