In a Twitter post, Adejobi explained why the police acted slowly against MC Oluomo, who threatened some electorates during the 2023 elections but were swift to arrest Portable.Portable arrested by Police
Responding to a user, Adejobi tweeted, “I have addressed MC’s case, but Portable has more than six counts to attend to, apart from resisting arrest and injuring a policeman. He will be charged to court for beating up a guy in Otta, 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.”
Portable had claimed in an Instagram Live video that some police personnel stormed his bar at Sango Ota at the instance of an internet fraudster. The video went viral, sparking outrage online and prompting the Ogun State Police Command to invite the singer to their office. However, Portable refused to show up.Portable arrested by Police
The singer was picked up on Friday by policemen and is expected to spend the weekend in detention. Adejobi reminded people that there is no sentiment in the law, and Portable will appear in court to allow the judge to listen to the charges against him. He also noted that Portable has no constitutional immunity.
