The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has confirmed the arrest of popular Nigerian singers, Zinoleesky and Mohbad.
It was earlier reported that Marlian Music signees and three others were arrested during a midnight raid on Thursday, February 24, 2022.
Confirming the arrest, NDLEA Spokesman, Femi Babafemi, said the singers were in possession of drugs, cannabis and molly.
DailyTrust quoted him as saying,
“Yes, they have been arrested because we had reliable information that they were in possession of drugs. We moved in on them and recovered dr#gs. That is why five of them were arrested; three males and two females. When their house was searched we found in their possession molly and cannabis. The investigation is still ongoing but we have to trace where they are getting these substances from.”
This is coming weeks after the Agency arrested Instagram comedian, De General, following a raid on his residence in Lagos.
He was charged to court although the court pardoned him, claiming that the amount of narcotics detected on him was ‘too small’ to warrant a punishment.
