Singer Portable Declared Wanted By Nigeria Police Force

The Nigeria Police Force, Ogun State command have ordered Nigerian singer, Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable, to immediately report himself at the nearest police stateion or be arrested.

This follows a case of an alleged assault on his former Disc Jockey, DJ Chicken.

In a viral video, Portable and a group of boys were seen assaulting the DJ. Portable, who spoke in Yoruba, ordered his “boys” to beat up the DJ for allegedly sending a message to his wife, “tell your husband to send all those boys around him away as they are not destined to make it.”

Portable said the victim of the attack offended him earlier but forgave him after several pleas.

Upon seeing the viral video, the police, frowned at his actions, describing it as “barbaric.”

The police spokesperson in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi, through a statement, ordered the Zaazu crooner to report to the nearest police station or risk being arrested.

The statement read in part: 

“The attention of Ogun State Police Command has been drawn to a video clip circulating on social media where a famous 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 behaviour is not only barbaric but unbecoming of somebody who is supposed to be a role model for the youths and should not be tolerated.

Given 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 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.”

Since his rise to fame in December 2021, Portable has made the most negative headlines. He was however nominated in the ‘Rookie of the Year’ category alongside Av, Fave, Magixx, and Ugocci.

For the Best Street-Hop Artiste category, he is pitted against Bella Shmurda, Mohbad, Naira Marley, and Goya Menor, among others.
