Musician Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable, has been released by the Lagos State Police Command after spending a night in their cell.

The Lagos State Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed the release to Vanguard, stating that Portable was released this afternoon.

Although SP Hundeyin couldn’t confirm if Portable had resolved the issues leading to his arrest, he did mention that Portable had been granted bail.

Portable was apprehended on Tuesday following allegations that he refused to settle a debt incurred from the purchase of a Mercedes Benz GLE 350 from Ogunsanwo Temitope (Temmy Autos), a car dealer in the state.

Reports indicate that Portable only paid N13 million after purchasing the vehicle, which was valued at N27 million, leaving a balance of N14 million unpaid.
