The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has given an update on the case of rapper CDQ. On Wednesday night, the rapper was arrested in his Lekki residence. He was picked up by the anti-drug enforcement agency for allegedly violating the drug law following an intelligence report the agency got.
According to The PUNCH, NDLEA’s Director, Media, and Advocacy, Femi Babafemi, confirmed his arrest, saying the case was still being investigated as some substance known as ‘loud’ a cannabis variant was found in the rapper’s house.
Babafemi said, “Yes, CDQ was arrested in his house at Lekki for being in possession of cannabis. He was arrested based on intelligence. As of last night, he was granted administrative bail, but he is expected back into custody today because it is an ongoing investigation.“Some substances were found and he mentioned some names of some other big artistes. So, it is an ongoing investigation.”
Babafemi further noted that CDQ cooperated as he mentioned names of other big artists who used the substance. The spokesman told The PUNCH that the outcome of the investigation would determine if the rapper would be charged to court or counseled by the agency. He said, “The outcome of the investigation would determine what would happen. There are cases whereby the investigation shows some sufficient infractions, and then the case will go to court. There are other cases whereby if the quantity is insignificant, we will bring him in for counseling and possible rehabilitation. Those are likely scenarios that will happen.”
