The Nigeria Police Force is set to prosecute street pop singer, Habeeb Okikiola mostly known as Portable, for allegedly exhibiting irrational behaviour and hurling insults at Police Officers on legal duty.

The Police Force spokesperson, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, confirmed this in a statement on Wednesday.

Adejobi condemned the musician for the viral video, where he was seen exhibiting irrational behaviour and hurling insults at Police officers carrying out their legal duty.

According to Adejobi, Portable’s action is an offence punishable by the laws of Nigeria. He said; “The action of the singer in the video was unruly and conduct likely to cause a breach of peace and incitement of violence against the officers. The officers were detailed to execute a warrant of arrest on him for series of allegations of criminal acts levelled against him.”

“The Nigeria Police Force 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.”
