MC Léo da Baixada, MC Salvador da Rima and MC Ryan SP vented on social media and stated that they are not criminals to be investigated in action against drug trafficking in São Paulo
Singers from funk disclosed on social media that they were surprised by the Civil Police of São Paulo on Thursday, 25, with search and seizure warrants that, according to journalist Luiz Bacci, are related to a police operation on the drug traffic, who would be sponsoring these artists. Sought by Young pan, the Public Security Secretariat (SSP) confirmed the operation, but preferred not to comment on the involvement of the singers in the action. “The Civil Police carries out an operation linked to an investigation into drug trafficking and association with trafficking. Police officers from all sectional police stations in the Capital Judicial Police Department (DECAP) are serving arrest and search and seizure warrants in the capital, metropolitan region and south coast of São Paulo, ”said the SSP in a note.
MC Léo da Baixada gave details of what happened in the Instagram stories: “Today, at 5 am the civil police broke down the door of my apartment, where my young children (one of them autistic), my wife and my parents live with me and they turned everything up! They took my cell phone and my belongings, so far I did not understand all of this, because I am not involved with anything wrong. Since I was 14 years old, I sing funk and, even without understanding it yet, my family had to go through all this embarrassment of waking up in the biggest shouting, full of rifles and guns in their faces. But God knows everything, God sees everything! Several things are happening in my life lately, but I will be strong, because I know that God has a purpose in all this ”.
The same happened with MC Salvador da Rima, who also said: “Today at dawn, the police also invaded my mother-in-law’s house, but I was not there, because I do not live there. Why is all this happening? We just sing, nothing more, MC is not a bad guy. If it is true that there is someone involved in the drug trade, it is not us who chose to sing so as not to make our mothers cry and, above all, we have never been aware of anything like that. I hope everything is cleared up, this persecution is worse than in the past, modern dictatorship is what we are experiencing ”.
MC Ryan SP gave a similar account: “MC is not a bandit! What is it my god? This morning, the civil police went after me in the apartment I lived in behind me saying that I have a bond or something like that with something wrong. This is not right and my lawyers are already on top. I’m sure we’ll get out of this. I am not the only one who is involved in this, there is a ‘mess’ of MC’s involved ”. According to Bacci, MC Toy e MC Pedrinho they would also be in the crosshairs of that operation.
