The Ogun State Police Command has arrested controversial singer, Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable, following the expiration of a 72-hour ultimatum given to him to turn himself in.
On Tuesday, two videos of the musician raining curses and rough-handling personnel of the Nigeria Police surfaced online.
Displeased by the conduct of Portable towards the officers, the police gave the singer 72 hours to turn himself in, a request that elapsed on Friday.
The police condemned the singer’s actions, adding that he would be prosecuted.
In the two videos, Portable claimed that an internet fraudster had brought the police to his bar to arrest staff members “for no reason.”
But the police noted that it acted on a petition.
Ogun State Police Command spokesperson, SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, who confirmed Portable’s arrest to newsmen on Friday, said that the singer is currently cooling his feet at the state headquarters in Eleweran, Abeokuta.
Oyeyemi further said the Zazu crooner was arrested after refusing five invitations.
The singer may likely remain in police custody till Monday, April 3, when he would be charged to court.
