In reaction to the viral video, the spokesman of the Ogun state police, Abimbola Oyeyemi has ordered Portable to report himself to the nearest police station.
In a statement released on Monday June 20, the spokesman deplored the gruesome scene, describing it as ‘Barbaric’.
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 organising some youths to beat up a young man and inflict bodiily injury on him.
The incident was said to have taken place somewhere within Ogun State about two days ago.
“Such unruly and viiiiooolent behaviour is not only barbaric, but unbecoming of somebody who 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 justiicce 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.”
