The Nigeria Police Force has recently announced its intent to take legal action against musical artist Habeeb Okikiola (AKA Portable) for his exhibition of irrational behaviour and insults hurled towards police officers on legal duty.
CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, spokesperson for the force, has expressed his condemnation of Portable’s decision to engage in such conduct and has made a strong statement confirming the decision to pursue criminal charges against him.
Adejobi has highlighted that Portable’s behaviours are not acceptable or condoned, citing that his actions are punishable under the criminal laws of the country. His statement serves as a reminder that this is not only an act of disrespect towards public officials, but also a criminal offence. The Nigeria Police Force takes this kind of behaviour very seriously, and this statement serves as a warning to any other individuals tempted to exhibit similar behaviour in the future.
“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 leveled 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,” he said.
The Police image maker pointed out that the force would not condone any unruly act, assault or attack on its officers, who are on lawful duty.
Adejobi said that members of the public must respect law enforcement agents, who perpetually take the risk of maintaining law and order as well as fight crime and criminality in our society.
