In addition, the 29-year-old called himself “a federal government burden” while confronting the policemen.

In a video, the singer claimed a ‘Yahoo’ boy brought the policemen to take him, meanwhile, he claimed he has made all his money through legit means, and the person behind the arrest was someone he had helped and even advised to go into music instead of internet fraud.

 However, in a statement on Wednesday, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, force public relations officer, described Portable’s actions as “unruly.” The police PRO said the singer exhibited “irrational behaviour” at police officers carrying out their legal duty.

“Hurling insults at Police officers carrying out their legal duty, an action which is criminal and punishable by the criminal laws of Nigeria.

“The action of the singer in the video was unruly and conduct likely to cause a breach of peace and incitement of violence against the officers who were detailed to execute a warrant of arrest on him for a series of allegations of criminal acts levelled against him.

“The NPF will take all necessary steps to investigate his actions and ensure that he is prosecuted for any criminal activity he may have committed depending on the severity of the offence.

“The Police will not condone any unruly act, assault or attack on its officers who are on lawful duty.

“We need to respect our law enforcement agents who perpetually take the risk of maintaining law and order and fight crimes and criminality in our society.”

The Ogun state police command earlier issued a three-day ultimatum to Portable to report himself.

“We’re expecting him to show up and if he doesn’t come, we are going after him. Only then will he know that he’s not bigger than the law,” the state police spokesperson had said.
