Nigerian rapper, CDQ has been granted bail by the Nigerian Drug Law Enforcement Agency, though he remains under investigation.
TheNewsGuru reports that on Wednesday, the ‘Ibile Mugabe’ crooner was arrested by NDLEA operatives in his Lekki residence.
He was said to have been arrested by the anti-drug enforcement agency for allegedly violating the drug law following an intelligence report.
NDLEA’s Director, Media, and Advocacy, Femi Babafemi, confirmed his arrest, saying the case was still being probed 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.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 counselling and possible rehabilitation. Those are likely scenarios that will happen”, he told Punch.
CDQ however took to his Instagram page on Wednesday night insinuating that someone was trying to set him up.
He wrote, “No sleep for the wicked. Iyalaya yin o ni sun for dis Lagos… They tryna set me up today but Olohun wa.”(sic)
