Usman Baba, the Inspector-General of Police, has ordered an investigation into controversial artist Habeeb Okikiola, also known as Portable, who claimed to have founded a cult group.
Portable boasted in a viral video of having formed the cult group ‘One Million Boys.’
The group had caused unrest throughout Lagos and Ogun states.
The sponsors and faces behind the cult group’s formation were unknown.
Portable, however, claimed in the eight-second video that he founded the group.
The controversial singer said, “Listen to me well, have you heard about Ajah Boys, One Million Boys, I’m their founder. Go and ask Sammy larry.”
But the Force Spokesperson, Muyiwa Adejobi, in a statement on Monday, said the IGP had ordered the Lagos police commissioner to investigate his claim.
It read, “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.”
