In reaction to the ugly incident, the Police Command of Ogun issued a statement on Monday, 20th of June, 2022, that the singer had to report to the nearby Police station or he will be arrested.
“Such unruly and violent behaviour is not only barbaric, but unbecoming of somebody who supposed to be a role model for the youths and therefore should not be tolerated.
In view of this, the Command is using this medium to advise Okikiola Habeeb a.k.a Portable to report himself at the nearest police station in Ogun State, failure of which his arrest will be ordered.
The flagrant display of impunity by portable in the viral video is condemnable and if not checked, it will send a wrong signal to the youths who are looking up to him as a role model
Jungle justice has no place in our laws and whoever embarked on it must be made to feel the weight of the law, no matter the status of such person”
