Update: Ogun Police gives singer Portable 72 hours to report himself or get arrested
The Ogun State Police Command has given controversial singer Portable 72 hours to report himself to the nearest police station or face arrest.
This comes after pandemonium broke out at the singer’s bar in the Sango area of Ogun state on Tuesday after police officers stormed the facility to arrest him.
Portable, who resisted the arrest, had gone live on his Instagram page while confronting the police officers as he asked what he had done to warrant the arrest.
The PPRO of the police force, Abimbola Oyeyemi, who confirmed the incident, had revealed that Portable was asked to report himself to the police on five occasions, but he refused to honor the invitation.
In a new development, Oyeyemi has revealed that the singer has been issued a 72-hour ultimatum to report to the nearest police station or get arrested.
He also revealed that the singer’s father had pleaded on his son’s behalf and promised to bring him to the station, but he still refused to honour their invites.
Speaking further, Oyeyemi disclosed that Portable was invited following a petition by a young studio owner who claimed that Portable and his guys brutally assaulted him and locked up his studio.
“On receiving the petition, an invitation letter was sent to him five times but he refused to appear at the police station. Again, an invitation letter was sent to him through his father; he still did not come to the station.
“The police did not want a breakdown of law and order so his arrest was to be effected on Tuesday and now he started with all series of videos, saying all sorts of things. His father has been begging but we have told him that if he (Portable) refuses to turn himself in between now and Friday, he will be arrested.”
