Subsequently, another video surfaced portraying him being subdued, handcuffed, and escorted by approximately four officers into a waiting vehicle.

Hundeyin, the police spokesperson, indicated that the singer’s legal representatives are anticipated to appear on Wednesday morning. He further stated that the possibility of legal proceedings, contingent upon discussions with the singer’s legal team, remains.

This incident isn’t Portable’s inaugural encounter with law enforcement.

Subsequently, he was remanded at the Ilaro Correctional Centre but later released upon meeting his bail requirements.
