The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA has revealed the reasons why the two popular Nigerian singers, Zinoleesky and Mohbad were arrested.
Recall that DAILY GIST reported earlier that the two musicians were arrested at their residence in the wee hours of Thursday.
NDLEA subsequently arrested the singers alongside three of their friends.
The arrest of the artistes was made known by a live video which has since gone viral. In the video, operatives of NDLEA were seen raiding the home of the artistes.
However speaking on the development, The Director of Media and Advocacy of the agency, Femi Babafemi, confirmed the arrest of the singers.
He noted that officials of the agency found illicit drugs in the house of the artistes and this led to their arrest.
In his words, He said, ” Yes, they have been arrested because we had reliable information that they were in possession of drugs. We moved in on them and recovered drugs. 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.”
