Portable fails bail conditions, sleeps in police cell



By Isa Isawade

Musician Habeeb Okikiola, a.k.a Portable, has passed the night in a police cell following his failure to meet the bail conditions set for his release.

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 Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, has reportedly confirmed that Portable slept in their cell and was still in police custody.

“He has presented no reliable surety yet so he (Portable) is still with us,” a newspaper quoted Hundeyin on Wednesday.

Portable tried to evade arrest by climbing a fence gate to escape when a smarter police officer caught up with him and pinned him down.

He was overpowered by the four policemen who went to arrest him and bundled him into their vehicle. Video clips of the drama went viral on Tuesday.
