Portable arraigned for ‘assault’ (VIDEO)


Portable, the controversial singer, has been arraigned at the magistrate court in Ifo, Ogun state.


The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) earlier said Portable will face more than six charges bordering on alleged assault in court.


“He is in court. There’s nothing to elaborate on. He is in court presently. He has been arraigned,” Abimbola Oyeyemi, Ogun state police spokesperson, said on Monday morning.


Portable was arrested on Friday after the expiration of the 72-hour ultimatum given to him by the police to turn himself in.


The ‘Zazoo Zeh’ crooner’s saga began last Tuesday after he had resisted arrest by the police in Ogun state.

The singer argued that the arrest was “unwarranted,” adding that he makes his money “legitimately.”


The 29-year-old also referred to himself as “a federal government liability”.


Muyiwa Adejobi, the NPF’s public relations officer, said portable will be charged with “assault” — apart from “resisting arrest and injuring a police officer”.

“He will be charged to court for beating up a guy in Ota, who filed a petition to CP Ogun,” Adejobi wrote on Twitter.


 “There are many pending cases of assaults on people and attacks, and he will be investigated because people have complained against him.


“So, there is no sentiment in law, let him appear in court, and allow the judge to listen to the charges against him. He has no constitutional immunity anyway.”
