Indigenous Nigerian rapper, Sodiq Abubakar Yussuf aka CDQ has been granted bail by the Nigerian Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA)
NewsWireNGR gathered that operatives of the NDLEA arrested him on Wednesday night in his Lekki residence for allegedly possessing drugs.
The Director, Media, and Advocacy, of the anti-drug agency, Femi Babafemi confirmed the rapper’s arrest in a chat with The Punch.
Babafemi said 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 artistes 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 counselled 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 counselling and possible rehabilitation. Those are likely scenarios that will happen.”
CDQ has however broke his silence on the incident.
He alleged in an Instagram post on Wednesday night that some persons were trying to frame 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.”
