Last year, Naira Marley’s signees, Zinoleesky and Mohbad, were arrested by operatives of NDLEA for possession of molly and cannabis.
Confirming their arrest, an officer of the NDLEA Femi Babafemi, while speaking with Newsmen, said Zinoleesky and Mohbad were arrested based on reliable information.
Naira Marley, who wasn’t in the country during the arrest, had cut his trip short following their arrest.
