“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.”
“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”
Recall that the rapper had earlier cursed his detractors for setting him up saying there will be no peace for the wicked.
