The Ogun State Police Command has ordered singer, Habeeb Okikiola aka Portable to report himself to any of the stations in the state or face arrest after a video clip circulating on social media showed the singer telling some youths to beat up a young man and inflict bodily injury on him.
A statement released by the spokesperson of the state police command says 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 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.” the statement read
Opeyemi stated that jungle justice has no place in the law and whoever embarks on it must be made to feel the weight of the law, no matter the status of such person.
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.
