The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has confirmed that Nigerian music star, Sodiq Abubakar Yusuf, popularly known by his stage name, CDQ, was picked up last night for being in possession of Cannabis.

Speaking with Punch, NDLEA’s Director, Femi Babafemi said the agency received an anonymous tip that CDQ was in possession of the banned substance and stormed his Lekki home.

Babafemi also said the artiste has been granted bail, but is expected back into custody today, April 15, as he is still under investigation.

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 artists. So, it is an ongoing investigation.”

Babafemi further noted that CDQ cooperated as he mentioned names of other big artists 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 counseled by the agency.

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 counseling and possible rehabilitation. Those are likely scenarios that will happen,”
