The Ogun State Police Command has ordered popular hip-hop musician, Habeeb Okikiola, best known as Portable, to report himself at the nearest police station.
The statement revealed that the Zazu Zeh crooner had ordered a mob tp beat up another young man in a viral video.
Abimbola Oyeyemi, the Command’s image-maker, stated on Monday that the incident happened two days ago within the State.
Oyeyemi explained that the victim was wounded greatly as a result of the beating.
The PPRO described Portable’s act as barbaric, unruly, and unbecoming of singer Portable, adding that he was supposed to be a role model for the youths.
The statement reads;
“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 Okikiola a.k.a Portable, the Zazu crooner was seen organizing some youths to beat up a young man and inflict bodily injury on him.
“The incident was said to have taken place somewhere within Ogun State about two days ago. Such unruly and violent behaviour 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 Okikiola Habeeb a.k.a Portable to report himself at 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, it 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.”
