Ogun State Police Command has issued Nigerian singer, Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable, a 72-hour ultimatum to report himself to the nearest police station over an alleged assault.
The state’s Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed the development in a recent statement.
Oyeyemi said Portable had been told to submit himself to the police or risk being arrested.
Also, he confirmed that Portable’s father had begged on his son’s behalf and promised to bring him to the station.
Two viral videos reportedly went viral revealing the artiste cursing some officers of the Force in Ogun state over the alleged arrest of his workers for no reason.
Oyeyemi, however, explained that the police made effort to arrest Portable following a petition by a young man alleging the singer alongside his aides had beaten him to stupor.
Oyeyemi said: “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 Portable refuses to turn himself in between now and Friday, he will be arrested.”
