The Ogun State Police Command has accused street-hop musician Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable, of six assault-related offenses.

The musician was detained by state police on Friday, March 31, after originally resisting arrest when they raided his office on Tuesday, March 29.

He was charged with more than six offenses, including resisting arrest and injuring a police officer, according to the force’s public relations officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, on Saturday, April 1.

“He will be charged to court for beating up a guy in Ota, who filed a petition to CP Ogun, There are many pending cases of assaults on people and attacks, and he will be investigated because people have complained against him,” he wrote in the tweet.

Everyone has been given a 72-hour deadline to surrender to the nearest police station or face arrest by Friday, March 31. Abimbola Oyeyemi, the state police public relations officer, extended the invitation to the musician in a statement.

Odeyemi confirmed the arrest, saying the controversial musician is being arrested at the police headquarters in Eleweran, Abeokuta.

It was also stated that He was arrested after he declined to accept five distinct invites for a talk.

In a now-viral video, the musician, who described himself as a “federal Government responsibility,” can be seen complaining in Yoruba that Yahoo lads had called the police to arrest him.

According to him, the arrest was unjustified, as he gets his money legally.

After the revelation of this misbehavior, the Police Headquarters in Abuja, through its spokesperson, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, stated on Wednesday, March 29, 2023, that the singer’s behavior was disorderly and punishable by law.
