Portable is released after fulfilling the conditions of the bail.

Habeeb Okikiola, a.k.a. Portable, is a Nigerian artist who was released from the Lagos State Police Command.

On Tuesday, May 14, Portable was taken into custody by force because of his suspected failure to pay for his G-Wagon, a high-end vehicle.

The Lagos-based vehicle dealer Ogunsanwo Temitope (Temmy Autos) sold the ‘Zazzu’ crooner a Mercedes Benz GLE 350, but the payment was not completed.

It was discovered that after buying the car, which was valued at N27 million, Portable had only paid N13 million.

It was reported that he declined to pay the remaining N14 million.

The musician tried to flee after being confronted by the police by jumping a gate, but the officers eventually caught him.

Spokesman for the Lagos State Police Command Benjamin Hundeyin stated on Wednesday afternoon, May 15, that the singer would remain in custody until he can provide a trustworthy surety, at which point he will be eligible for release on bond.

As Hundeyin put it:He has presented no reliable surety yet so he (Portable) is still with us.”

The singer’s release was confirmed to Vanguard on Wednesday night by SP Benajmin Hundeyin, the public relations officer for the Lagos State Police.

The spokesperson continued, “If Portable had resolved the problems, then yes.

“I have no idea about it but what I can say is that he has been granted bail.”
