Post Views: 0
The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has decided to charge Habeeb Okikiola, also known as Portable, with unreasonable behavior toward police officers assigned to carry out their legal duties.
According to the police, the alleged insulting of cops on duty filmed in a viral video is a criminal offense punishable under Nigerian law.
FPRO officer, CSP, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, who stated this in a statement made accessible to journalists in Abuja, also stated that the singer’s behavior in the video was rowdy.

Furthermore, Adejobi stated that the conduct was likely to result in a breach of peace and instigation of violence against the officers who were assigned to serve a warrant of arrest on Mr Portable for a series of criminal allegations leveled against him.
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”.
