Portable regains freedom after meeting bail condition

Nigerian musician Habeeb Okikiola, also known as Portable, has regained his freedom from the custody of the Lagos State Police Command.

Portable was forcefully arrested on Tuesday over his alleged refusal to complete payment for his luxury car, the G-Wagon.

The ‘Zazzu’ crooner had purchased a Mercedes Benz GLE 350 from Ogunsanwo Temitope (Temmy Autos), a car dealer in Lagos but failed to complete the payment.

It was gathered that Portable had paid only N13 million after purchasing the vehicle, which was worth N27 million. He was said to have refused to pay the N14 million balance.

The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benajmin Hundeyin, confirmed the release of the singer to Vanguard Wednesday evening.

When asked if Portable had sorted out the issues, the spokesman added, “I have no idea about it but what I can say is that he has been granted bail.”
