Basketmouth Says NDLEA Wasted Tax Payers Money Arresting Degeneral

Ace Nigerian comedian, Bright Okpocha, aka Basketmouth, has described the arrest of Instagram skit maker Degeneral by operatives of the NDLEA as a waste of taxpayers money.

Basketmouth Says NDLEA Wasted Tax Payers Money In Arresting Degeneral

Degeneral was arrested by operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency who stormed his house in the early hours of Wednesday 12th January for possession of hard drugs.

Reacting to the arrest, Basketmouth took to his Instagram story to state that in as much as he doesn’t support the use of hard drugs, he also doesn’t see any sense in Degeneral’s arrest.

Basketmouth pointed out that Degeneral was found with little quantity of weed which he was photographed with at  NDLEA Festac office.

 “Don’t get me wrong, I’m not supporting the use of marijuana, I don’t do such. I’ll never do such a thing. But what I’m saying is that you people are wasting taxpayers’ money to go and arrest someone with small pinch of ‘Igbo’. You just wasted my money now.”
