Spokesperson for the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, Femi Babafemi, has said they the agency intentionally enlisted controversial artiste, Azeez Fashola, aka Naira Marley, for its drug abuse advocacy.
Recall that criticisms trailed a video of Naira Marley advising youths to stop taking illicit substances. This was particularly so because the singer is known to glorify and encourage drug abuse.
Babafemi said, “It is an advocacy engagement with him to promote advocacy messages that would discourage people from substance abuse.
The drug agency’s spokesperson also noted that using Marley as an advocate did not mean that the agency won’t arrest him if he was caught with illegal substances.
