The inspector general of the Nigerian police force, Usman Baba had ordered a critical investigation into singer Portable’s claims of founding Lagos notorious cult groups, ‘one million boys’ and ‘Ajah boys’.
Portable had, in a viral video, boasted to have formed the cult groups which had caused unrest in parts of Lagos and Ogun States.
Initially formed as a vigilante group in the Ajegunle suburb, One Million Boys metamorphosed into a dreaded cult group known for numerous robbery activities around Lagos and its surroundings.
The group, which later made Ikorodu its stronghold, is notorious for writing and hand-delivering letters to the streets they intend to rob.
The sponsors and faces behind the cult group had been unknown until Portable leased an eight seconds video claiming he founded the group.
“Listen to me well, have you heard about Ajah Boys and One Million Boys? I am their founder. Go and ask Sammy Larry,” the controversial singer said.
In response to this, the Force Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, in a statement said the IGP had ordered the Lagos State Commissioner of Police to investigate his claim.
The statement read, “Sequel to the trending video of one Habeeb Okikiola aka Portable where he claimed to have formed the One-Million Boys cult group terrorising some parts of Lagos State, the IGP has ordered CP Lagos to investigate the indicting statement and take necessary legal action.
“This directive is premised on the continuous efforts of the Nigeria Police Force to fish out pillars and sponsors of cult groups in order to decimate their activities and restore sanity to our society.”
Portable has turned to be a clear case of ‘Fame miss road’. Back in June, the Ogun State Police Command ordered the ‘Zazu Zeh’ crooner to report himself to any nearest police station over an allegation of mob justice instigated by the artiste in a viral video.
