Popular Nigerian comedian and skit maker, Nasty Blaq has been harassed and beaten up by operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA.
Nasty, whose real name is Abisi Emmanuel Ezechukwu, took to Twitter to lament over the abuse and molestation himself and his Personal Assistant received from the NDLEA agents.
He narrated that they were beaten up by the officers for no reason, when the law enforcement agents stormed his estate in a raid.
He said one of the officers threatened to pull the trigger on him even though they knew who he was.
“It is with deep sadness I share my experience here on social media but I hope this gets seen by everyone.
“Yesterday, while I was on my way to a visit at (location), I was accosted by men who claimed to be from the NDLEA.I was asked to dismount from my vehicle, raise my hands and identify myself. In my bid to avoid an escalation, I complied.
“However, I was immediately slapped from behind by another individual. I protested this maltreatment and was joined by my PA.Immediately, the men from the NDLEA began to brutally assault me and my PA.
“One of the men from NDLEA cocked his rifle and shouting, told me he would not hesitate to shoot me dead. In his words, he said he had no reason to hold back even though he knew I was a public figure.
“On further inquiry, I found out the NDLEA was conducting a raid on the estate I was visiting and that this same brutal treatment was meted out to several other individuals that same night.
“This kind of lawlessness is the same situation that for years Nigerians have dealt with at the hands of men in uniform and now, after all the clamor, it seems like the new threat to the safety of Nigerians is the NDLEA.
“I am a victim and I will not keep silent.I am in the process of making formal complaints to the Nigerian Police and the NDLEA.
“I have demanded an investigation into the matter and will pursue every legal avenue to ensure that the individuals responsible are brought to book.”
Nasty Blaq’s experience is coming less than 24 hours after fellow skit maker, De General had his home invaded and assaulted by the NDLEA.
