The Ogun State Police Command on Monday, directed popular hip-hop musician, Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable, to report himself at the nearest police station.
Portable being summoned in connection to a viral video clip on social media, where he was seen to have mobilised some youths to beat up a young man, who is said to be a local disc jockey.
In the video clip, the Zazu crooner was seen asking the youths who are believed to be members of his music crew to beat up the DJ, after the controversial singer accused him of texting his wife to urge him (Portable) do away with his crew members.
OgunnState Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, in a statement, said that the incident reportedly occurred somewhere within the state about two days ago.
Oyeyemi explained that the victim was inflicted with bodily injury as a result of the assault.
The PPRO described the act as barbaric, unruly, and unbecoming of the singer, 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 Okikiola a.k.a Portable, the Zazu crooner was seen organising 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,” the statement partly reads.
