Following the arrest of Instagram comedian De General, the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has disclosed why he was apprehended.
A video posted online shows the moment the arrest is made, with De General fuming over the invasion of his privacy and getting his phone knocked out of his hand for recording it.
Speaking on the arrest, NDLEA Spokesperson Femi Babafemi disclosed that the move was made because of drugs found in the comedian's house.
“He (De General) was arrested because drugs were found in his house. A detailed statement will be issued shortly", he said to Daily Trust on Wednesday.
Fellow comedian Mr. Macaroni reacted to the arrest and criticized those involved, saying it was a case of harassment to enter people's houses in the middle of the night in that manner.
Concerned netizens also condemned the development.
