Sunday Martins, a comedian, was detained by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).
According to the agency’s spokesman, Femi Babafemi, the suspect allegedly admitted to owning illegal substances found in his home.
Babafemi said the social media sensation was apprehended in the early hours of Wednesday following a raid on a known drug den in Lagos’ Orchid Estate.
He continued that narcotic officers raided the estate’s drug den, where three suspects were caught with illicit substances including 200 sachets of 225mg Tramadol and 1.5 kilograms of cannabis sativa, based on valid intelligence.
He claimed that during the operation, some people fled with bags containing exhibits, including the suspected dealer.
Babafemi added that they ran into a house at 2B Saula Akinlolu Way, Orchid Estate, where 22-year-old Sunday Joshua lives (aka De General)
He said: “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.
“In his confessional statement in custody, the suspect admitted ownership of the drugs recovered from his house.”
