Police to prosecute Portable for insulting officer

Portable in trouble again for insulting police officer.

The police also stated that the force will not condone any act of assault or attack on its officers who are on lawful duty.

The Nigerian Police Force has confirmed that it would prosecute a certain musician, named Habeeb Okikiola (AKA Portable), for allegedly exhibiting irrational behaviour and hurling insults at officers of the force on legal duty.

A spokesman of the force, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, confirmed this in a statement on Wednesday.

A viral video of the “zazu” crooner surfaced online, where he was seen exhibiting irrational behaviour and hurling insults at police officers – an action Adejobi has condemned.

According to him, Portable’s action was criminal and punishable under the criminal laws of the country.

In his words: “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.”

Adejobi also stated that members of the public must respect law enforcement agents, who try their best to fight crime and maintain law and order in the society.
