The Nigerian Police have launched an investigation into a viral video, where popular musician, Habeeb Okikiola, otherwise known as Portable, was seen bragging and admitting to being among those that formed the dreaded cult group, known as “One Million Boys.”
The Force Spokesman, 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’ are a group of cults that usually operate 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.
Portable in the viral video said: “Have you heard of ‘Ajah Boys’ and ‘One Million Boy’ I was behind their formations.”
Before now, Portable has a pending case with the police for allegedly inciting a group to attack a young man, who almost lost his life in the process.
Adejobi said: “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.”BEWARE All Rights Reserved.
