The Ogun state police command has revealed why it got an arrest warrant for ‘Portable’, the controversial singer.
In now-viral footage, the singer is seen lamenting that “Yahoo boy sent the police to arrest me”.
“Police is our friend but these ones here are not our friends. Yahoo boy said they should come and arrest me,” he said.
“If you want to invite me to your station, you will invite me with money. Are the police and Yahoo boys now working together? I spend legitimate money and I don’t do Yahoo.
“Am I a Yahoo boy? Why did you come to my office to arrest people? What did I do? You came to my bar and everyone is running.”
The 29-year-old also referred to himself as “a federal government liability”.
Abimbola Oyeyemi, the state police spokesperson, told BBC that Portable was asked to report himself to the police on five occasions but he refused to honour the invitation.
The police spokesperson said he was invited for questioning after a report was lodged against him.
“We have also sent an invitation to him through his father like two times, yet he did not show his face,” he said.
Oyeyemi said following his refusal to honour the invitation, the police approached a court to get an arrest warrant for Portable.
“When the officers got to the place to carry out the arrest, Portable, on sighting them, stripped himself naked so as to create a scene,” the police spokesperson added.
“We are going to use minimum force to arrest him. Portable is not bigger than the law.”
The singer broke into the spotlight in December 2021 when he released a street hop song titled ‘Zazoo Zeh’.
He has since then been in the public eye for several controversial reasons.
