Operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, in the early hours of Wednesday have arrested a skit maker, Sunday Joshua, popularly known as De-General, following a raid on the notorious drug joint at Orchid Estate, Lekki area of Lagos state.
This was contained in a statement by the spokesman of the Command, Femi Babafemi, which was sent to Prime Time News on Thursday.
Je said the command, acting on credible intelligence, sent narcotic officers, who stormed the drug joint in the estate, where three suspects were arrested with illicit drugs, including 200 sachets of 225mg Tramadol and 1.5kilograms of cannabis sativa.
According to him, in the course of the operation, some persons, including the suspected dealer ran away with bags suspected to be containing exhibits.
“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 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,” Babafemi said.
In his confessional statement in custody, according to Babafemi, the suspect admitted ownership of the drugs recovered from his house.
