Zazu crooner Portable

The Ogun State Police Command has asked the Zazu crooner, Habeeb Okikiola popularly known as Portable to report at the nearest police station over an alleged assault on a young man or risk being arrested.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Abimbola Oyeyemi said the command is in possession of a video circulating on the social media where the popular hiphop star was seen organising some youths to beat up a young man and inflicted bodily injury on him.

He described the action which was said to have taken place in the state two days ago as barbaric and could send a wrong signal to the youths on violent behaviour.

Portable has thus been advised to report himself at the nearest police station failure of which his arrest will be ordered.

Below is the statement:

“The attention of Ogun State Police Command has been drawn to a video clip circulating on social media where a popular hiphop 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 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.”
