Portable, as usual, did not report to the nearest police station and was arrested and detained at the State Police headquarters in Eleweran, Abeokuta.
Portable, who had been humiliated, was seen attempting to defend himself at the Police headquarters in a new video that went viral on the internet.
During questioning, Portable claimed that he didn’t know that the men who stormed his bar in the Sango Ota area to arrest him on Tuesday were police officers.
