The Force Public Relations Officer of the Nigeria Police, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, has disclosed that controversial Nigerian singer, Portable, has at least a six-count charge against him and he would appear at the court to defend himself concerning the charges leveled against him.
Responding to a Twitter user who stated that the police were slow to act against MC Oluomo, who threatened some electorate during the 2023 elections, but swift to pick Portable up, the Force PRO in a tweet noted, “I am sure u are very awake as I have addressed MCs case, but Portable has more than 6 count charges to attend to, apart from resisting arrest and injuring a policeman. He will be charged to court for beating up a guy in Otta, who fired a petition to CP Ogun.
“There are many pending cases of assaults on people and attacks, and he will be investigated bc pple have complained against him. So, there is no sentiment in law, let him appear in court, and allow the judge to listen to the charges against him. He has no constitutional immunity anyway. Ire o.” (sic)
Portable, Zazoo crooner earlier in the week, shared an Instagram Live video claiming that some police personnel stormed his bar at Sango Ota at the instance of an Internet fraudster (Yahoo Boy).
The video, which has since gone viral, sparked some outrage online, which prompted the Ogun State Police Command to invite the singer to their office. However, Portable refused to show up.
On Friday, 31 March, 2023, the singer was picked up by policemen and is expected to spend the weekend in detention.
