Popular comedian, Basketmouth (Bright Okpocha) has lambasted the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) over the arrest of skit maker, Degeneral.
He said: “When I saw the news I thought NDLEA saw like 300kg of drugs in the comedian’s house or he’ll be a drug dealer but I saw just a small quantity that can just roll two or three sticks.
“I’m thinking how the NDLEA feel after the raid, you should have small shame you know people carrying weed in large quantities.”
“We have bigger problems to worry about, these boys need those things to smoke because headlines in Nigeria recently can make you take cocaine. This country you need it his to normalize yourself.”
“All these things the boys are doing is therapeutic. I’m not supporting the use of marijuana but I’m saying you guys are wasting taxpayers’ money to arrest the likes of Degeneral with small ‘Igbo’.”
For those who don’t know, Degeneral was arrested on Wednesday, January 12th, 2022 after the NDLEA stormed his house and found Tramadol 15kg and other drugs.
