Police declares singer Portable wanted over jungle justice

The Ogun police command has ordered the popular hip-hop musician, Habeeb Okikiola professionally addressed as Portable, to immediately appear at the nearest police post or be arrested by the police.

This came following an alleged assault on his former Disc Jockey, who’s simply known as DJ Chicken.

In a video posted on social media, the singer and some boys were sighted assaulting the DJ.

Portable, who was speaking in his mother tongue (Yoruba), instructed his boys to punish the DJ for allegedly messaging his wife.

Reacting, the spokesman of the police in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi, has compelled the controversial singer to hand himself over to the police in the state or get arrested.

The image maker of the police in the state via a statement made available to newsmen in Abeokuta, Ogun state capital, on Monday, said the incident was “barbaric.”

The statement reads, “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 behavior 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 a person.”
