It would be recalled that last week, the agency reported a large scale drug bust carried out in a warehouse located at Ikorodu, Lagos State.
During the operation, 197 billion naira worth of cocaine, which weighed 1.8tonnes was seized, and the suspected drug barons were also arrested.
In a video shared via the agency’s Twitter page on Tuesday, NDLEA showed the seized drugs being set ablaze.
“VIDEO: NDLEA sets ablaze 1.8 tons of cocaine recovered from a warehouse in Ikorodu area of Lagos today, Tuesday 27th September 2022,” the caption read.
Reacting to the news, lawyer turned rapper, Falz, faulted the agency for burning potential evidence before culprits are arraigned before a court of law.
He asked, “This administration must really think that we are daft sha!! What is this lamba (lie) that the NDLEA is giving with this cocaine seizure saga? Dem dey burn evidence?”
Collaborating with Falz, actor Nosa Rex wrote: “No be only burn…na Burna Boy ye ye ye”
Paul Mogbolo wrote: “I don’t believe anything was burnt.”
