Feelers from Nigerian Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) says it has set up a panel to look into the video and take appropriate actions which might include inviting Davido over for questioning. Media reports said Mr Mitchell Ofoyeju, Director of Public Affairs of NDLEA has hinted about the possible action by the agency.
“I am aware that a panel is working on it (the video). The panel was set up soon after the video was released few weeks ago. When our attention was drawn to it, we viewed it and we discovered that it was improper. There is no moral lesson in it and he was just advertising drug trafficking. In the video, he exchanged a briefcase supposedly containing narcotics for dollars.
“He was displaying affluence in the video. If it (the plot) had climaxed in an arrest and possible detention, we would have congratulated him for partnering with us. But the way he portrayed drug trafficking in the video was a means to an end, which end is a life of affluence which we disagree with. We are looking at the issue holistically. We believe that there should be a body that was supposed to censor videos before they go out.”
The NDLEA spokesperson said the different angles of the visuals will spur whatever decision the agency will take on the matter. “Those are the things we want to investigate and verify. Was the video submitted for approval? If it was submitted, why was it approved, with such content?” Ofoyeju said.
