Singer Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable, has said he doesn’t know One Million Boys armed robbery gang but has one million fans.
This was after the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Baba, ordered an investigation into a claim by the singer that he established the notorious armed robbery gangs, One Million Boys and Ajah Boys.
The singer had made the claim in a viral video on social media, saying, “Open your ears and be listening. Have you heard of Ajah Boys, One Million Boys? I established them.”
The video was brought to the attention of the Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, who said the claim will be probed by the Lagos State Commissioner of Police as ordered by the IGP.
He made this known in a terse statement, titled, ‘Cultism: Police to Investigate Portable over formation of One Million Boys.’
He 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 in order to decimate their activities and restore sanity to our society.”
