Portable Runs the Risk of Being Sued for Rude Behavior

In response to the viral video showing Nigerian artist Habeeb Okikiola, also known as Portable, refusing arrest at his bar, police spokesperson for Nigeria Olumuyiwa Adejobi said the behavior was disorderly and illegal.

On Tuesday, police officials barged into the singer’s pub in an effort to apprehend him.

According to Portable, the people who took the police to the club to make the arrest were online scammers.
The police said in a widely shared video that they were going to arrest Portable after receiving a petition against him.

The Ogun State Police Command confirmed the arrest and claimed that despite numerous invitations being issued to Portable, he refused each one, leading the police to decide to break into his establishment and make the arrest.

In a statement released on Wednesday, March 29, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, condemned Portable’s conduct and said the police will take all necessary steps to investigate his actions and ensure he is prosecuted for any criminal activity he may have committed depending on the severity of the offense.

The Nigeria Police Force has denounced the activities of one Habeeb Okikiola, better known by his stage name Portable, who was seen acting irrationally and insulting police officers who were carrying out their legal duties in a viral video. This behavior is illegal and is punished under Nigerian law.

The singer’s behavior in the video “was disorderly and behaviour likely to provoke a breach of peace and instigation of violence towards the officers who were sent to execute an arrest warrant on him for a series of criminal allegations filed against Mr Portable.

“The NPF will take all necessary steps to investigate his actions and ensure that he is prosecuted for any criminal activity he may have committed depending on the severity of the offense.
