The Ogun State Police Command has given Nigerian musician, Habeeb Okikiola, better known as Portable, a deadline to report himself at the nearest police station or face arrest.
The Command’s spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, gave the deadline when he spoke with Channels Television on Tuesday.
Oyeyemi said the Zazu crooner has up till Wednesday to report himself.
Recall that following a viral video in which Portable ordered his aides to beat up another of his followers, the police had reacted, asking him to report himself at the nearest police station.
Oyeyemi had said such acts would not be condoned by the Ogun State Police Command.
The Police Public Relations Officer had said in a statement on Monday: “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.”
