Hebeeb Okikiola, better known by his stage name Portable, has landed himself in hot water after a viral video surfaced showing the Zazu crooner organizing a group of teenagers to beat up a young man and injure the victim.

He has been instructed by the Ogun State Police Command to attend to the nearest police station or face being arrested forcibly.

Portable’s actions were termed as disorderly, belligerent, and barbarous by the police command’s spokesman, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi.

According to the police, the action was unbecoming of someone who was supposed to be a role model for young people and so should not be condoned.

Portable’s shameless display of lawlessness in the viral video is unacceptable, and if it is not addressed, it will convey the incorrect message to the youths who look up to him as a role model,” the police headquarters stated.

The attention of the Ogun State Police Command has been drawn to a video clip circulating on social media in which 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 statement reads in full. The incident is said to have occurred roughly two days ago somewhere in Ogun State.

Such disorderly and violent behavior is not only savage, but also unfitting of someone who is supposed to be a role model for young people, and should not be tolerated.

In light of this, the Command is using this means to advise Okikiola Habeeb a.k.a Portable to report to the nearest police station in Ogun State, failing which his arrest would be ordered,” the statement reads.

Portable’s brazen display of impunity in the viral video is abhorrent, and if left unchecked, it will convey the wrong message to the teenagers who look up to him as a role model.

Jungle justice has no place in our laws, and anyone who engages in it should be forced to experience the full force of the law, regardless of their status.
