De General Arrested By NDLEA
In a video circulating the social media, De General was seen talking to the NDLEA operatives about accessing his apartment before their heated exchange escalated into an alleged assault.
Another comedian, Debo Adebayo, popularly known as Mr. Macaroni, confirmed the incident in a video shared on his Twitter page where De General could be seen arguing with men in red jackets until the device filming was knocked off.
Sharing the video, Mr Macaroni said: “So you people’s work is to enter people’s houses in the middle of the night to beat and harass citizens. This is happening right now. We don’t know where they have taken him to. Oppressors everywhere.”
