The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has resolved to prosecute Habeeb Okikiola, better known by his stage name Portable, for allegedly acting irrationally toward police officers assigned to carry out their official duties.
According to the Police, obscenities allegedly hurled at officers who were on duty and recorded in a popular video are illegal acts that are punishable under Nigerian law.
In a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja, FPRO officer CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi noted that the singer’s behavior in the video was disorderly.
Additionally, Adejobi explained that the conduct was likely to cause a breach of peace and incitement of violence against the officers who were detailed to execute a warrant of arrest on him for a series of allegations of criminal acts levelled against Mr Portable.
In his words, “The NPF will take all necessary steps to investigate his actions and ensure that he is prosecuted for any criminal activity he may have committed depending on the severity of the offence.
“The Police will not condone any unruly act, assault or attack on its officers who are on lawful duty.
“We need to respect our law enforcement agents who perpetually take the risk of maintaining law and order and fight crimes and criminality in our society”.
