The Nigerian Drug Law Enforcement Agency has granted CDQ bail, despite the fact that he is still under investigation.
Men from the NDLEA detained Sodiq Yusuf, also identified as CDQ, in his Lekki home on Wednesday night.
Following an intelligence survey, he was said to have been apprehended by the anti-drug enforcement agency for allegedly violating the drug rule.
NDLEA’s Director of Media and Advocacy, Femi Babafemi, confirmed his arrest in an exclusive interview with The PUNCH, saying the case was still being investigated after a drug known as ‘loud,’ a cannabis derivative, was discovered in the rapper’s home.
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.”
The rapper’s phone number was disconnected when The PUNCH tried to call him. CDQ, on the other hand, responded with an Instagram message, implying that someone was attempting 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)
