It appears the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) is currently on the trail of Nigerian Instagram comedians.

Barely 24 hours after the agency arrested popular skit maker, De General, on grounds of possession and usage of hard drugs, his colleague, Nasty Blaq has accused the NDLEA of assault.

Nasty Blaq, whose real name Abisi Emmanuel Ezechukwu, took to his Twitter page on Wednesday to narrate his ordeal in the hands of men who claimed to be NDLEA operatives.

According to the comedian, he was accosted by the unidentified officials who asked him and his personal assistant to alight from the car, an order he willingly complied.

“However, I was immediately slapped from behind by another individual. I protested this maltreatment and was joined by my PA.

“Immediately, the men from the NDLEA began to brutally assault me and my PA.

“One of the men from NDLEA cocked his rifle and shouting, told me he would not hesitate to shoot me dead. In his words, he said he had no reason to hold back even though he knew I was a public figure,” he wrote.

Nasty Blaq stated that upon further inquiry, he was informed that the NDLEA was conducting a raid on the estate he was visiting, adding that the brutal treatment he got was meted out to several other individuals that same night.

The funnyman said, “This kind of lawlessness is the same situation that for years Nigerians have dealth with at the hands of men in uniform and now, after all the clamor, it seems like the new threat to the safety of Nigerians is the NDLEA. I am a victim and I will not keep silent.

“I am in the process of making formal complaints to the Nigerian Police and the NDLEA. I have demanded an investigation into the matter and will pursue every legal avenue to ensure that the individuals responsible are brought to book.”
