N14m Debt: Portable Fails Bail Conditions, Sleeps in Police Cell

Posted by Thandiubani on Wed 15th May, 2024 - tori.ng

Portable was arrested Tuesday, bail conditions were set for his release and he failed to meet the bail conditions.

 
Nigerian musician, Portable has been detained in a police cell over his inability to meet the bail conditions set for his release.
 
This followed his arrest for refusing to pay the N14m debt he incurred when he purchased a G-Wagon from a car dealer in Lagos State.
 
According to Punch, a source who spoke on Wednesday, confirmed the development.
 
The source confirmed that the singer spent the night in police cell.
 
The source said when Portable was arrested Tuesday, bail conditions were set for his release and he failed to meet the bail conditions.
 
“He is still in police custody as we speak. When he paid N13m for the G-Wagon that cost N27m and refused to pay the balance, the car dealer asked him to return the vehicle when his excuse was that it was bad but he also refused,” the source said.
 
Confirming that Portable passed the night in a police cell after he was arrested, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, when contacted on Wednesday, said the musician was still in the custody of the police.
 
Hundeyin 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.
 
PUNCH Online had reported that Portable, during the purchase of the vehicle worth N27m, paid only N13m and had refused to pay the N14m balance.
 
Despite several failed attempts to get him to pay the balance, the car dealer, who claimed that Portable’s excuse for not paying was that the vehicle was bad, reported to the police.
