Gang Beating: Report yourself - Police order Portable

Portable Portable

The Ogun State Police has on Monday, June 20, 2022, ordered fast-rising musician, Portable to report himself at the nearest police station.

This was connected to a viral video on social media, where the star was said to have organised some youths to beat up a young man.

In the video, Portable was seen asking some youths to beat up a man.

The spokesperson of the police command, Abimbola Oyeyemi, revealed that the incident happened in the state about two days ago.

According to Oyeyemi, the victim was heavily injured as a result of the beating.

“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,” parts of the statement read.
