The police have said they will prosecute a musician, Habeeb Okikiola, alias Portable, for allegedly exhibiting irrational behaviour and hurling insults at police officers on duty.
Force Spokesperson, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, who confirmed this in a statement on Wednesday, condemned the musician for a viral video where he is seen exhibiting irrational behaviour and hurling insults at police officers carrying out their duty.
While noting that Portable’s action was criminal and punishable by the criminal laws of Nigeria, he said, “The action of the singer in the video is unruly and is a conduct likely to cause a breach of peace and incitement of violence against the officers.
