Alleged Assault: Police Arrest Portable After 72-hour Ultimatum


The Ogun State Police Command has arrested controversial Nigerian singer, Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable.

It was learned that the ‘Zazoo Zeh’ crooner was arrested on Friday following the expiration of the 72-hour ultimatum given to him to turn himself in.

Speaking with Premium Times, the state police spokesperson, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said that the singer is currently at the state headquarters of the police in Eleweran, Abeokuta.

Oyeyemi said the arrest warrant became necessary after Portable refused to honour the police invitation on several occasions.

Recall that officers from the command stormed the singer’s bar on Tuesday in a bid to arrest him following a petition filed against him.

But in a live video, Portable claimed that internet fraudsters were the ones that brought the officers to the club to make the arrest.

The singer resisted attempts by the police to arrest him and also referred to himself as “a federal government liability”.

Following his alleged misconduct, the Force Headquarters in Abuja, through its spokesperson, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, on Wednesday, revealed that the singer’s action was unruly and his act punishable under the law.


Also, Oyeyemi asked the singer to either turn himself in at any police station in the state or report himself to its headquarters in Abeokuta within 72 hour-ultimatum or face police arrest.

He said several invitations were sent to Portable but he ignored them all, hence the decision of the police to invade his bar and effect his arrest.

Oyeyemi further said the Zazu crooner was invited following a petition by a young studio owner who claimed that Portable together with his aides beat him up to a stupor and locked his studio.

He said: “Yes but his father has promised to produce him on or before Friday. So, we are expecting him to show up and if he doesn’t come, we are going after him.

Only then will he know that we have the wherewithal to get him because he is not bigger than the law.”
