‘I work for Tinubu, we own Nigeria’ – Portable resists police arrest
On Tuesday, there was a minor incident involving the Nigeria Police and controversial musician Habeeb Okikiola, also known as Portable.
The singer of "Zahzooh" posted a live video on Instagram of himself fighting off police officers who had stormed his wine bar and tried to arrest him.
In the video, the singer could be seen resisting the police officers' attempts to remove him from the scene.
He claimed an internet fraudster hired the officers to arrest him and some of his staff.
Portable told the policemen that he is a “superstar” and works for the president-elect, Bola Tinubu, so he can’t be arrested.
One of the officers told him that he had been petitioned at their station. However, Portable continued to resist arrest, insisting that he was a “federal government liability”.
He said, “You dey tell superstar say ‘you are under arrest’. In my office? You are telling me you are under arrest for what? Why why? Did I know you?
“Petition against me, that’s why you came and scattered my bar. You come, and everybody is running up and down. Even me… You are supposed to call me, then I will come to your office or my manager will come. I have a manager.”
The police officers told him to cooperate, adding that what he was doing would not help him.
Portable fumed: “No, don’t tell me this one I’m doing will not help me." I’m a superstar. I’m a celebrity. Show me your ID cards, everybody. Show me your ID card, oga….I’m a federal government liability. I work for APC. Akoi Tinubu. "We own Nigeria,” he added.
