The Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba Alkali has directed the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alabi to investigate hip-hop artiste, Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable over claims that he founded a notorious cult group terrorising Lagos State called ‘One Million Boys’.
This was made known in a statement signed by the Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi and made available to National Association of Online Security Reporters, NAOSRE.
Portable had claimed in a trending video uploaded on his Instagram handle @portablebaeby which is now deleted that he founded the dreadful ‘Ajah Boys’ cult group likewise the ‘One-million Boys’ cult group, both of which terrorized some parts of Lagos State during the COVID-19 lockdown in 2020.
The Zah Zuh crooner who spoke in Yoruba dialect boasted, “Open your ears and hear me. Have you heard about Ajah Boys, One Million Boys, I founded them. Go and ask Sammy Larry.”
National Association of Online Security Reporters, NAOSRE has applauded the prompt action of the Nigerian Police Force to the claims of the Zah Zuh crooner.
According to the President of the association, Comrade Femi Oyewale, the necessity for effective security starts with reacting to little informations that can be useful in sanitizing our society especially a case where someone willingly cleared the air.
Oyewale reaffirmed the commitment of the association to continuously offer publicity supports to security agencies in a manner that could bridge prevailing distrust between citizens and officers in uniform.
He stressed the necessity for effective communication about the patriotic activities of security officers so that the civil society would be well abreast of issues to avoid conflict of interests.
However, in a follow-up video posted on his handle, Portable denied creating the dreaded groups, he said he was referring to his fans as one-million boys and have never had any connection with the cult groups.
NAOSRE, thereafter promise to keep the public updated through out the investigation process.
