Nigerian comedian cum human rights activist, Mr. Macaroni has called out the Nigerian Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) for invading and assaulting his colleague, Chukwuyem Jude Israel also known as De General.
De General shares an Instagram live video where officials of NDLEA stormed his residence at midnight and ‘assaulted’ him and his friends.
The comedian in a part of the video could be seen being beaten by officials of the agency following his decision to record the invasion.
