Joshua Sunday, the Nigerian skit maker better known as De General, has finally reacted to his recent ordeal with the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).
On January 12, operatives of the NDLEA had raided the skit maker’s Lagos home in a drug bust.
He was later charged with three counts of trafficking tramadol and cannabis sativa and convicted of the charges by a federal high court in Lagos after pleading guilty.
But the court had held that the volume of substance was minimal to warrant a sentence and cautioned the defendants to “go and sin no more”.
In a video shared via his Instagram page on Tuesday night, the entertainer thanked everyone who supported him during his ordeal with the NDLEA.
He also enjoined the public to disregard the claim that he is a drug trafficker, adding that “I only traffic laughter and comedy.”
“As you all can see, I am alive, I am healthy, I am back to my house eating, and I am freshened up. I just want to thank the general public and to let them know that I am fine. And for you folks trying to reach out to me, showing your concern, I appreciate it a lot,” he said.
“I just want to want to debunk the news circulating about the De General being a drug trafficker. I’m not a drug trafficker! If I was a drug trafficker, do you think they’ll allow me go like that? I only traffic laughter and comedy.
“So let’s get our facts right. De General is not a drug trafficker, and I love you all. I don miss to dey do skits. E kon be like say nah one year.”
