A trail showed they ran into De General’s house. 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 statement also stated that Degeneral has admitted ownership of the drugs found in his possession.

” In his confessional statement in custody, the suspect admitted ownership of the drugs recovered from his house,” The statement read.

The video of Degeneral’s arrest went viral in the early hours of Wednesday 12th January. The comedian had gone live on Instagram before his arrest.

In the live video, he was seen confronting NDLEA officers, however, a few minutes into the conversation, he was slapped and his phones destroyed and the live video ended.

His friend Ayothecreator had earlier called for the release of the skit maker insisting that it’s all a set-up as the comedian doesn’t do drugs.
