Popular Nigerian rapper, Falz has reacted to reports that operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement agency (NDLEA) has destroyed cocaine worth N194bn seized from a warehouse in the Ikorodu area of Lagos.
It was earlier reported that the warehouse located in a secluded estate in Ikorodu was busted on Sunday, Sept 18, and the drug barons were arrested in their hideouts.
Hard drugs worth more than Two Hundred and Seventy-Eight Million, Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand Dollars ($278, 250,000), equivalent to about One Hundred and Ninety-Five Billion, Seven Hundred and Seventy-Five Million (N194, 775,000,000) Naira in street value were confiscated by the anti-drug agency.
In a new development, NDLEA has released a video showing the moment they destroyed the hard substance with fire barely two weeks after they were seized.
Reacting to the news, Falz, a lawyer and activist, took to Twitter to tackle NDLEA for burning the evidence of an ongoing case when the suspects have not been tried in court
He described the drug saga as ‘lamba’ – a big fat lie, and said the government must think Nigerians are foolish for them to pull such a stunt.
The rapper tweeted,
”This administration must really think that we are daft sha!! What is this lamba that the NDLEA is giving with this cocaine seizure saga? Dem dey burn evidence?”
