LAGOS, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)- Nigerian controversial singer, Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable has been granted bail by the Magistrates Court in Ifo, Ogun State .
Ogun State Police Command had arraigned Portable on a three-count charge bothering on alleged assault and theft of musical equipment.
On hearing the case at the Ifo High Court in Ogun State, the judge granted him bail and requested to fulfil the bail condition before leaving the court premises.
The bail condition includes a N300,000 (three hundred thousand naira) fee and two sureties from his immediate family.
Recall that the Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Muyiwa Adejobi, had said Portable will face more than six count charges bordering on alleged assault and his inciting comments against the police.
Adejobi had said: “He will be charged to court for beating up a guy in Ota, who filed a petition to CP Ogun.
“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.”
