Osiagor while delivering judgment maintained that due to the minimal volume of substance found with De General and his accomplice, Caleb Williams, the two would be convicted and cautioned rather than being sentenced.

Basketmouth, in a video, explained that he thought the young man had a large quantity of illegal stuff on him with the way he was handled by the officers.

One social media user who reacted to Basketmouth's take on the matter wrote:

"As in eh…. Bursting someone and doing a whole press release because of 2 tie of blunt …. Nigerian law enforcement is a joke."
