Nigerian rapper, Sodiq Abubakar Yusuf, popularly known as CDQ was arrested by the Nigerian Drug Law Enforcement Agency on Wednesday for allegedly violating the drug law.
Speaking with the Punch, the agency’s director for media and advocacy, Femi Babatunde disclosed that some substance known as “loud” – a variant of cannabis was found in the rapper’s possession.

According to him, CDQ cooperated during his arrest while he also mentioned names of other big artistes who use the substance. While the matter is still under investigation, CDQ has been granted bail as outcome of investigation would determine if he would be charged to court or counselled by the agency.

“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.” Babatunde said


“Some substances were found and he mentioned some names of some other big artistes. 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 counselling and possible rehabilitation. Those are likely scenarios that will happen.”

Meanwhile, the “indomie” crooner has reacted to the development via an Instagram post, saying that someone was trying to set him up.

“No sleep for the wicked. Iyalaya yin o ni sun for dis Lagos (Your forebears won’t sleep in this Lagos)… They tryna set me up today but Olohun wa.” He wrote
