G-Wagon Debt: Portable Spends Night In Police Cell, Fails To Produce Reliable Surety



Nigerian music artiste, Habeeb Okikiola, popularly called Portable, arrested on Tuesday over alleged failure to pay the balance of a G-Wagon car he bought, has passed the night in a police cell.

He was said to have failed to meet the bail conditions set for his release.

Portable who jumped a gate to evade arrest was apprehended by the police for refusing to pay the N14m debt he incurred when he purchased a G-Wagon from a car dealer in Lagos State.

A police 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.

Also, state Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed that Portable passed the night in a police cell after he was arrested.

He 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.”
