Habeeb Okikiola, a.
k.a. Portable, is a well-known and contentious singer. On Tuesday, the Ogun State police command revealed plans to arrest him with the least amount of force possible.
Recall that earlier on Tuesday, in a widely shared video on social media, Portable challenged the police officers who stormed his restaurant in Ogun State to explain why he was being detained and refused to be taken into custody.
The video shows Portable claiming that the police made an unauthorized arrest.
”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,” he said.
Confirming the incident, the state police spokesperson, Abimbola Oyeyemi, explained that the singer had refused to honor 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 honor 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,” he stated.
