Nigerian famous singer, Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable is in for it for resisting arrest by some police officers.
For those who don’t know, the singer on Tuesday, March 28th, 2023 resisted arrest by police officers that stormed his restaurant in Ogun State.
Besides, Portable in a viral video on social media was seen challenging the police officers, saying he wants to know the reason for his arrest. He also accused the police of illegal arrest.
He said: “Show me your arrest warrant. Why did you come to my office to arrest people? You came and everyone was running. A yahoo boy sent police to arrest me just because I advised him to stop doing yahoo and vent into music.”
“Are the police and Yahoo boys now working together? I don’t do Yahoo. I’m a musician. If you want to invite me to your station, you will invite me with money.”
Be that as it may, the Ogun State Police Command in a statement by its Spokesperson, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said; “Portable has refused to honour the police invitation on five occasions.”
“We have also sent an invitation to him through his father twice for questioning after a report was lodged against him.”
“The police approached a court to get an arrest warrant for him following his refusal to honour the invitation. On sighting the police, Portable stripped himself naked so as to create a scene.
“Portable is not bigger than the law. We are going to use minimum force to arrest him.”
