The singer’s actions were condemned by the police authorities as Force Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, saying the musician exhibited irrational behaviour towards police officers carrying out their legal duty.
The singer was issued a 72-hour ultimatum to report himself to the police or face arrest.
The singer failed to obey the ultimatum and was subsequently arrested on Friday following it’s expiration.
Portable’s arrest was confirmed by Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi.
According to Oyeyemi, the musician is at the State Headquarters of the police in Eleweran, Abeokuta and would be charged to court once investigations are concluded.
