A few weeks after being invited to the police station over alleged violent harassment, the Inspector General of Police of the Nigerian Police Force, Baba Alkali has ordered the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alabi to carry out a thorough investigation into an alleged cultism formation of One Million Boys, a cultists group by the popular rap star, Habeeb Okikiola aka Portable.
The IGP gave this order in a statement released by the Force Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi on Monday.
The order followed a trending video where Portable was seen claiming the formation of the One Million Boys group.
The statement reads; “Sequel to the trending video of one Habeeb Okikiola aka Portable where he claimed to have formed the One-Million Boys cult group terrorizing some parts of Lagos State, the IGP has ordered CP Lagos to investigate the indicting statement and take necessary legal action.

In the now-viral video, the singer disclosed that the victim of the attack offended him earlier but he forgave him after several pleas.
The victim came under attack after he allegedly called Portable’s wife, saying, “tell your husband to send all those boys around him away as they are not destined to make it.”
This prompted the attack in which the victim reportedly sustained bodily injuries following the attack which prompted the police to issue an arrest warrant for him.
Portable recently apologized to Smooth Productions, organizers of popular Nigerian music awards, The Headies, who condemned his outburst concerning the nominations.
The controversial artiste had threatened the lives of fellow nominees contending with him in the Best Street-Hop Artiste and Rookie of the Year awards, according to the nomination list.
“Those are my awards; anybody who wins will ask for them to be killed. I will
