Portable, whose real name is Habeeb Okikiola, has landed himself in yet another trouble after a viral video surfaced online showing the Zazu crooner organising a group of youths to beat up a young man.
The Ogun State Police Command has ordered him to report himself to the nearest police station or risk arrest being forcefully arrested after the video went viral.
The Ogun State Police command stated this in a statement made by its spokesman, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, who described the action of Portable as unruly, violent, and barbaric.
Oyeyemi said the action was unbecoming of somebody who was supposed to be a role model for the youths and therefore should not be tolerated.
The statement reads in full: “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.”
