Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable, has been released on bail after spending a night in police custody. The musician was arrested by the Nigeria Police on Tuesday for refusing to pay a N14 million debt owed to a Lagos car dealer for the purchase of a G-Wagon.

Benjamin Hundeyin, the State Police Public Relations Officer, confirmed this to Journalists on Wednesday evening that he has been released on bail.

In a series of viral videos documenting the moments leading up to the arrest of popular musician, the artist attempted to evade arrest by fleeing the scene.

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

Despite being pinned down, Portable appeared to resist arrest, with the officers eventually overpowering him and forcefully placing him inside a vehicle.

These video clips have generated a range of reactions on social media, with fans and fellow musicians voicing their opinions on the controversial situation.

While some condemn Portable for his actions during the arrest, others are quick to criticize him for failing to pay the N14 million balance on the purchase of a luxury vehicle, claiming that this behavior is unbefitting of his status in society.

Portable’s arrest and subsequent release on bail have prompted broader discussions about personal responsibility and the consequences of financial disputes. With the singer’s reputation now under scrutiny, many are left wondering how he plans to address the outstanding debt and resolve the contentious situation with the Lagos car dealer.
