The Ogun State Police Command has ordered singer, Habeeb Okikiola populary known as Portable to report himself to the state station or face arrest after a video shared online showed the singer telling some youths to beat up a young man and inflict bodily injury on him.
According to a statement from a spokesperson for the state police command, the incident occurred somewhere in Ogun state about two days ago.
The statement reads:
“Such unruly and violent behavior 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.”
Opeyemi stated that jungle justice has no place in the law and anyone who engage on it must be made to feel the weight of the law, regardless the person’s status.
In the video, Portable ordered the young men to assault the victim for reaching out to his wife to advise him to send all the boys around him away.
