The Nigerian Police Force, Ogun State command has ordered the Nigerian singer popularly known as portable to report himself to the nearest police station , over a video circulating on social media, where he organized some youths to beat up a young man.
In a statement issued by the Command’s spokesperson , Abimbola Oyeyemi , on Monday, the incident happened somewhere within the state two days ago and that the young man was inflicted with several injuries as a result of the beating.
The PPRO described the act as barbaric, unruly and unbecoming of Portable , who was supposed to be a role model for the youths.
”The attention of Ogun State Police Command has been drawn to a video clip circulating on social media where a popular hip-hop musician, Habeeb Okikola aka Portable, the zarzuela crooner was seen organizing some youths to beat up a young man and inflict body injury on him.
”The incident was said to have taken place somewhere within Ogun State two days ago. Such unruly and violent behavior is not only barbaric but unbecoming of somebody who is supposed to be a role model for the youths and therefore should not be tolerated.
In view of this, the Command is using this medium to advise Habeeb Okikola aka Portable to report himself to the nearest police station in Ogun State, failure of which his arrest will be ordered.
The flagrant display of impunity by ‘Portable’ in the viral video is condemnable and if not checked will send a wrong signal to the youths who are looking up to him as a role model.
”Jungle justice has no place in our laws and whoever embarked on it must be made to feel the weight of the law, no matter the status of such person .”
