Police order Portable to report himself over viral video of Jungle justice


A Nigerian singer, Habeeb Okikiola, also known as Portable, has been ordered by the Nigeria Police Force to report himself after a viral video.

Portable was reportedly seen in a viral video accusing a young man of sending a message to his ‘wife’ advising him to stay away from his friends because they had no glory.

The ZaZu Zeh singer asked the young man to name his friends who he accused of lacking in glory in the video.

The singer ordered his boys to beat the helpless man without allowing him to say anything.

Portable was heard saying “e luu pa,” which means “beat him to death,” as they pounced on the victim in Yoruba.

In response, the Portable was instructed to report to the Ogun State Command, as the incident occurred within the state.

While describing the act as unfit and barbaric, Abimbola Oyeyemi, the spokesperson for the Ogun State police, asked the singer to surrender or face being declared wanted.

“The Ogun State Police Command has been alerted to a video clip circulating on social media in which 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 is said to have occurred about two days ago somewhere in Ogun State.

“Such disorderly and violent behaviour is not only barbaric, 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 medium to advise Okikiola Habeeb, a.k.a Portable, to report to the nearest police station in Ogun State, failing which his arrest will be ordered,” the statement reads.

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

“Jungle justice has no place in our laws,” Oyeyemi said in a statement on Monday. “Whoever embarked on it must be made to feel the weight of the law, regardless of their status.”
