The police in Ogun state have confirmed reports of its officers attempted to arrest singer, Portable at his bar on Tuesday.
Recall that a video went viral in which Portable caused a scene when some police officers came in to arrest him.
In the viral video, the officers said they received a petition against Portable and were there to arrest him.
Portable argued that he is a “superstar, a federal government liability and someone who works for APC.” so he cannot be arrested just like that.
He claimed that the police did not invite him for questioning and cannot just come into his establishment to arrest him.
The spokesperson of the state police command, SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed that men of the command went to effect Portable’s arrest.
According to Abimbola, four invitations have been sent to Portable to come for questioning after a fellow singer wrote a petition to the police command claiming Portable stormed his studio, got some people to beat him up, and then locked his studio.
Oyeyemi stated that Portable failed to honour the invitations and so the officers after securing a warrant of arrest from a competent court of jurisdiction, went to his bar to get him arrested.
He said Portable decided to cause a scene so as to prevent the police from doing their job, Oyeyemi said that Portable’s father intervened and promised to bring the singer on or before Friday, March 31.
He said the police will wait for Friday and that if Portable’s father fails to bring him to the station, they will proceed to arrest the singer.
“He is not above the law,” Oyeyemi said.
