The Nigeria Police Force has described the actions of Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable, as unruly, criminal and punishable by the criminal laws of Nigeria.
The police said it will not condone any unruly act, assault or attack on its officers who are on lawful duty.
The singer in a video that has gone viral on social media video, was seen exhibiting irrational behaviour and hurling insults at Police Officers carrying out their legal duty.
Force public relations officer Olumiyiwa Adejobi, who made this known, said 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 who were detailed to execute a warrant of arrest on him for series of allegations of criminal acts levelled against him.
Adejobi, in a statement, said “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,” he said.
