Controversial street musician Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable, has been arrested by officers of the Lagos State Police Command.

The ‘Zazzu’ crooner was nabbed on Tuesday following his alleged refusal to pay the debt he incurred when he purchased Mercedes Benz GLE 350 from Ogunsanwo Temitope (Temmy Autos), a car dealer in the state.

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 car dealer reportedly took the matter to the police, leading to the arrest of the singer.

The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, also confirmed the arrest to newsmen.

He said: “The report is true. He was arrested today.”

In January, Portable called out Adebiyi Adesina, also known as Unique Motors, another car dealer on social media over their ongoing dispute over G-Wagon he got from the dealer.

On Saturday, January 6, 2024, the singer, who had been an ambassador for the brand, expressed grievances over a Brabus G wagon he purchased from them, which was later involved in an accident.

Portable emphasized that he is still in possession of the automobile’s documents and hinted at considering an ambassadorial deal from Temmy Autos.

Portable also shared his frustration over the termination of his contract and the repossession of his jeep, urging fans to be cautious in trusting others.
