Following a video clip circulating on social media, where popular hip-hop musician, Habeeb Okikiola, aka Portable organised some youths to beat up a young man, the Ogun State Police Command has ordered him to report himself to the nearest police station.

According to the statement issued by Ogun State Police’s spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, on Monday, June 20, 2022, the incident happened somewhere within Ogun State about two days ago.

Oyeyemi explained that the young man was inflicted with bodily injury as a result of the beating.

The PPRO described the act as barbaric, unruly, and unbecoming of Portable, who was supposed to be a role model for the youths.

The statement reads; “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.”
