The Inspector-General Of Police, Usman Baba, has ordered the arrest and probe of music star, Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable, over his alleged ties to One Million Boys, a notorious cultist gang.
IGP disclosed this in a statement issued by Muyiwa Adejobi, Force Public Relations Officer and made available to Journalists on Monday
In a video, which went viral on Monday, Portable was heard saying he formed the cultist group and another notorious group known as Ajah Boys.
“Open your ears and hear me, Have you heard about Ajah Boys, One Million Boys, I’m their founder. Go and ask Sammy larry.”
The singer spoke Yoruba in the now-deleted video.
The force PRO said the Lagos Commissioner of Police has been asked to investigate Portable.
The statement reads in part: “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 effort 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.”
Ever since he came to the limelight in December 2021 after the release of his song, ‘Zazu Zeh’, in which he featured top artiste and record label boss, Olamide, practically no month has gone by without Portable, being in the news for negative reasons.
The singer was recently mocked for congratulating the Osun State governorship winner, Senator Ademola Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) after supporting the opposition party.
