Portable, a Nigerian musician, has been granted bail by an Ogun State court in the Ifo local government area.
The musician was arraigned in court yesterday, April 3, 2023, on a six-count accusation bordering on violence and theft of someone’s musical instrument. He was given bail in the amount of N300,000 with two sureties in the same amount.
The court determined that both sureties must have landed properties near the court.
He was ordered to remain in the Ilaro Correctional Facility until he met the bail requirement, and the matter was delayed until April 26.
Immediately after the court verdict, the singer’s Instagram feed was updated with fresh photographs and a comment thanking God. “Alhamdulilahi,” he captioned the photographs.
Another video appeared online in which the singer discussed the previous few days. He claimed to have learned a new lesson, claiming that what happened was God’s way of protecting him from an untimely death.
The musician resisted arrest as police raided his club and attempted to arrest him for failing to honor many invitations made to him.
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.
