A popular skit maker, Sunday Joshua also knows as D-General has been arrested by the Operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA for allegedly dealing in illicit drugs.
A statement signed by the Agency’s Spokesperson, Femi Babafemi says the comedian was arrested in the early hours of Wednesday 12th January, 2022.
This follows the raid of a notorious drug joint at Orchid Estate, Lekki area of Lagos state.
He said narcotic officers 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 Babafemi in the course of the operation, some persons including the suspected dealer ran away with bags suspected to contain exhibits.
He added that 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).
Stating further, he said the young men started to make noise to prevent a search even after the operatives have introduced themselves as officers of NDLEA and submitted themselves for search before entry and the search was conducted.
He stated further that the search led to the recovery of drug exhibits including cannabis sativa; Tramadol 225mg, and some paraphernalia for drug use.
Babafemi said this was after the suspect had requested to record on video the search, 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.
The statement added that in his confessional statement in custody, the suspect admitted ownership of the drugs recovered from his house.
