Report Yourself Immediately Or Risk Arrest – Police Tell Portable (See Why)
Nigerian singer, Portable has been ordered to report himself at the nearest police station.
The order was given by the Ogun State Police Command after a video of him ordering his “boys” to beat up his former Disc Jockey, DJ Chicken, went viral.
In a statement issued by the Command’s spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, on Monday, it was revealed that the incident happened somewhere within the State about two days back.
According to him, the young man was inflicted with bodily injury as a result of the beating.
Describing the act as barbaric, unruly, and unbecoming of Portable, the police spokesman ordered portable to report himself at the nearest police station or risk being arrested.
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 bodily injury on him.
“The incident was said to have taken place somewhere within Ogun State about 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 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 a person.”
