Portable in trouble with the Police over his claim of forming a notorious cult group
Nigeria uprising songwriter and multi-talented musician Habeeb Okikiola popularly known as Portable (omolalomi) the musician who was born on 12th of March 12, 1994 was said to have shared a video of himself on social media where he claimed he established the notorious cult group; ajah boys and one million boys, although the video has since been deleted.
In the now deleted video, he was seen saying; “Open your ears and hear me; have you heard about Ajah Boys, One Million Boys? I’m their founder, go and ask Sammy Larry,” he boasted while speaking in his native language Yoruba. The 28 years musician (Portable) is known to be a carefree guy who says whatever he likes on the social media as this is not the first time he will be saying such. He once threatened to kill if headies gives his award to any other person aside him, though he later apologized after the convener of the award reported him to the Nigeria Police Force.
The notorious one million boys was said to have disrupt the peace of Lagos State and its neighbor state during the compulsory total lockdown in 2020 in order to protect covid-19. Amid the criticism sparked by Portable’s remark, the police described the singer’s statement as indicting.
Reacting to this story, the Inspector General of Police, Baba Usman, has directed authorities of the Lagos State Police Command to investigate the claim and ensure necessary legal action was taken.
The Force Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, confirmed the police chief’s directive in a statement on Monday in Abuja.
Adejobi, a Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP), explained that the move was in line with the police drive to identify sponsors of cult groups and curb the activities of the criminals in the country.
“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,” the force spokesman said.
“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.”
