Portable In Police Net After 72-Hour Ultimatum
The police in Ogun State have arrested singer, Habeeb Okikiola, commonly called Portable after a 72-hour ultimatum given to him to honour police invitation.
In viral videos on Tuesday, the musician was seen raining curses on and rough-handling some policemen deployed to the recreational centre he owns in Ogun State.
Portable’s actions have since been condemned by the police authorities with the Force Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, saying the artist exhibited irrational behaviour and hurled insults at police officers carrying out their legal duty.
However, after the expiration of the ultimatum for the singer to honour the invitation, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed that Portable has been arrested.
He told Journalists on Friday that the musician is at the State Headquarters of the police in Eleweran, Abeokuta.
The PPRO said as soon as the investigation is concluded, the artiste will be charged in court.
