N14m debt: Portable meets bail conditions, regains freedom

Popular singer, Habeeb Okikiola, aka Portable, has regained his freedom after meeting the bail conditions set for his release following his arrest for refusing to pay the N14 million debt he incurred when he purchased a G-Wagon from a car dealer in Lagos State.

 

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed the development to our correspondent on Wednesday evening.

 

Asked if Portable had been released after meeting his bail conditions, the PPRO said, “He’s been granted bail.”

 

Recall that Hundeyin, while responding to an inquiry on whether Portable passed the night in police custody over failure to meet his bail conditions on Wednesday morning, said, “He has presented no reliable surety yet so he (Portable) is still with us.”

 

Meanwhile, in two viral videos showing the moments policemen attempted to arrest Portable, our correspondent observed in one of the videos that Portable attempted to evade arrest when he fled the scene.

 

The policemen, who gave him a hot chase, caught up with him and pinned him down.

 

Despite pinning him down, our correspondent, while observing the second video, saw that Portable was resisting arrest by four policemen who carried and dumped him inside a vehicle.

 

The video clips had been generating diverse reactions.

 

While some people condemned Portable for resisting arrest, some others blamed him for ridiculing his status in society by not paying the N14m balance incurred during the purchase of the vehicle.
