Police To Investigate Music Artist, “Portable” Over Cultism Claims


0

The Inspector General of Police, IGP Alkali Usman Baba, has ordered investigations into claims made by controversial Nigerian singer Habeeb Okikiola aka Portable.

The Force Public Relations Officer, FPRO, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, disclosed this Monday, 18 July, 2022.

TheFact Daily reports that the order of the Police Chief is sequel to claims made by the entertainer, in a now deleted video, of being behind the formation of the One-Million Boys cult group that has been terrorising some parts of Lagos State.

Complying with the directive of the IGP, who ordered the Lagos police commissioner, Abiodun Alabi, to investigate the indicting statement and “take necessary legal action”, the State police has vowed to take necessary legal action pending the outcome of the investigation.

“This directive is premised on the continuous effort of the Nigeria Police Force to fish out pillars and sponsors of cult groups in order to decimate their activities and restore sanity to our society”, Adejobi said.

TheFact Daily learns that One Million Boys was initially formed as a vigilante group in the Ajegunle suburb, but metamorphosed into a dreaded cult group known for numerous robbery activities around Lagos and its surroundings.

The group, which later made Ikorodu its stronghold, is notorious for writing and hand-delivering letters to the streets they intend to rob.

A movie titled ‘1 Million Boyz’ was released in 2014 based on their activities.

On Monday, Portable claimed that he founded One Million Boys.

Speaking in Yoruba language, the singer boasted: “Open your ears and hear me. Have you heard about Ajah Boys, One Million Boys? I’m their founder. Go and ask Sammy Larry.”
