The Ogun State Police Command, on Monday have ordered Portable to report himself to any nearest police station, over an allegation that he hired thugs to beat one of his ex-close associates, DJ Chicken.
In a viral video shared about 2 days ago, Portable was seen asking thugs to beat up Dj Chicken for interfering and acting like his manager.
In a statement issued by the Command’s image-maker, Abimbola Oyeyemi, on Monday, explained that the young man was inflicted with bodily injury as a result of the beating and has ordered the Zazu crooner to report himself to the nearest police station in the state or risk being arrested.
The statement read;
“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 organizing 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.”
