The Nigerian Police Force launches investigation into a viral video, where music artiste, Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable, was seen bragging and admitting to being among those who formed the dreaded cult group, “One Million Boys.”
Force Spokesperson, CSP Muyiwa Adejobi, said that the decision to investigate the musician was premised on the continuous effort of the Nigeria Police Force to fish out pillars and sponsors of cult groups to decimate their activities and restore sanity to the Nigerian society.
“One Million Boys” is a group of cultists that usually operates in large numbers, with members being mostly teenagers.
They are known to be involved in armed robbery, rape, and other violent crimes. For years now, the group had held Lagos State by the jugular.
Prior to police decision to investigate the Zazu artist, he had quickly dismissed associating with the “One Million Boys” gang of cultists in a separate video.
Unfortunately, his rejoinder was a little too late.
The police statement read in part, “Sequel to the trending video of one Habeeb Okikiola aka Portable where he claimed to have formed the One-Million Boys cult group terrorising some parts of Lagos State. The IGP has ordered CP Lagos to investigate the indicting statement and take necessary legal action. This directive is premised on the continuous effort of the Nigeria Police Force to fish out pillars and sponsors of cult groups to decimate their activities and restore sanity to our society”.
