Embattled Instagram skit maker and comedian, Joshua Sunday, widely known as DeGeneral, has released his first statement following his release from the Nigeria Drug Law Enforcement Agency’s custody on Monday.
The comedian made a clarification regarding his business, saying that he is not a drug trafficker.
Justice Daniel Osiagor of the Federal High Court on Monday, convicted the comedian alongside Caleb William, a cinematographer.
But in his ruling, the judge held that the volume of substance was minimal so rather than sentence them to jail, he warned them to “go and sin no more”.
DeGeneral took to his IG page on Tuesday and shared a video where he assured fans that he was alive, well, and prepared to go back to making skits after a short two-week absence.
The skit maker said; “As you all can see, I am alive, I am healthy, I am back to my house eating, and I am freshened up.
I just want to thank the general public and to let them know that I am fine. And for you folks trying to reach out to me, showing your concern, I appreciate it a lot.
“I just want to want to debunk the news circulating that De General is a drug trafficker. I’m not a drug trafficker! If I was a drug trafficker, do you think they’ll allow me go like that? I only traffic laughter and comedy.
“So let’s get our facts right. De General is not a drug trafficker, and I love you all. I don miss to dey do skits. E kon be like say nah one year”.
