Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh has been angered by the Nigerian National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) for choosing singer Naira Marley as an advocate for the war against drug abuse.

This is because the singer had publicly shown his interest for smoking weed.

 “I don’t involve myself in bullshit, especially other people’s bullshit. This, I must say, is the biggest embarrassment from any government agency or drug law enforcement agency," wrote the actress

She added “@ndlea_nigeria, you are looking like a disgrace. This is not an insult, although I’m open to a trade. This is from a daughter of the soil speaking on your misconduct. Is this a skit or comedy show?" 

“I’d like to say more, but I’ll wait for @ndlea_nigeria to pick me up for an interview or drug test or just chat with me about why I am bold enough to call them out.”

“Sirs/ma’s, I’m ready. You know my address. I’ll ask you to do it respectfully; otherwise, we’ll have a problem. And if I’m replied, I’ll gladly respond disrespectfully,”

Speaking after his appointment for the campaign ‘War against Drug Abuse,' the singer said.

“My people, this is Naira Marley; I’ll urge all my fans and the youths in Nigeria to stop doing drugs because it is not good for your well-being.”

“Let us stop substances of any form. I’ve keyed into this campaign to support NDLEA to stop street drugs. Please join us. Drugs make you go back into crime,” 

Responding to critics after his appointment, the singer tweeted “I don’t do drugs, I just smoke weed”.
