Two Marlian music signees, Oniyide Azeez (Zinoleesky) and Mohbad (Ilerioluwa Oladimeji) have been arrested by officials of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) over alleged use of hard drugs.
NDLEA stormed their home in the Lekki area of Lagos to whisk them away.
In video uploaded on Instagram, the agents were seen hitting the artists and forcing them into a waiting bus.
According to reports, the NDLEA officials allegedly broke into the residence of the musicians in the middle of the night, without having any search warrant and they arrested and manhandled everybody they saw there including the ladies.
The entire scene was chaotic as some ladies with the artists at the time of the arrest were heard screaming and condemning the violence meted out on the music stars.
Confirming the arrest, the NDLEA Spokesman, Femi Babafemi, said Cannabis and Molly were recovered by the operatives.
