Nigerian comic, Joshua Sunday, popularly referred to as De General, has said he is not a drug trafficker. De General stated this in a brand-new video shared on his Instagram page, after he regained freedom from detention.
The spoof maker discussed that he would not have been launched from custody if he were a drug trafficker.
“As you all can see, I’m alive, healthy, back in the house. I simply wish to expose the news hypothesizing that De General is a drug trafficker.
“I’m not a drug trafficker. If I was a drug trafficker, you believe they would enable me to go like that? I only traffic laughter,” he stated.
DAILY POST remembers that the comic was arrested after drugs were apparently found in his apartment.
De General was convicted of drug trafficking by a Federal High Court in Lagos alongside Caleb William, for unlawfully dealing in 15g of cannabis and 14g of tramadol in Lagos State.
They were both charged to court with three counts of trafficking Tramadol and Cannabis Sativa.
The duo after pleading guilty in court told the court that they have never ever tasted drugs, confessing that the substances found on them were props for their funny skit.
Justice Daniel Osiagor, in his ruling stated that the volume of compound found on them was minimal so he would rather found guilty the offenders and warn them, rather than sentence them.
The judge warned the defendants and inquired to “go and sin no more”.
