The singer’s peril began last week when he shared an Instagram Live video claiming that some police personnel stormed his bar at Sango Ota at the request of an Internet fraudster (Yahoo Boy). The video, which has since gone viral, sparked some outrage online, which prompted the Ogun State Police Command to invite the singer to their office. However, Portable refused to show up after the 72-hour ultimatum given to him by the police to turn himself in.
