Portable visits Mosque to pray after being released on bail [Video]

Nigerian artiste, Portable stormed his neighbourhood to a rousing welcome from supporters after he was granted bail following his arraignment in court.

He visited a Mosque to observe prayers (tarawih) amid Ramadan, late Monday night after perfecting his bail conditions.

Portable was earlier transported to the Ilaro Correctional Centre in Yewa South Local Government Area of Ogun State on the orders of the court.

It may be recalled that he was arraigned on five counts bordering on assault before the court presided over by the chief magistrate, A.S Shoneye.

Portable, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The presiding judge said the offences are bailable and granted him bail with bail bond of N300,000 and N500,000 as well two sureties who must reside within the jurisdiction of the honorable court.

The case was adjourned to April 26 for trial.

A video which is currently making the rounds online shows the singer being followed by fans upon meeting his bail conditions.

A group of young boys excited over his return, ran after Portable as he was about to enter the mosque and the singer happily told them he wanted to go in to pray before entering the mosque.

Last week, Portable had a heated exchange with men of the Ogun State Police command that stormed his restaurant to arrest him.

The Zazuu star resisted arrest and challenged them to know the reason for showing up and went on Instagram live to reveal that a Yahoo boy hired 20 police officers to intimidate him.

“Show me your arrest warrant. Why did you come to my office to arrest people? You came and everyone was running. A yahoo boy sent police to arrest me just because I advised him to stop doing yahoo and vent into music.

”Are the police and Yahoo boys now working together? I don’t do Yahoo. I’m a musician. If you want to invite me to your station, you will invite me with money,” he said in a viral video.

The security personnel were eventually forced to leave his office after their failed attempt to take him to the station.

Following the incident, Police PRO Adejobi in a statement titled “Portable’s conduct unruly, punishable under the law”, said the police officers in the viral video were only carrying out their legal duty.

He explained that police authorities will take necessary action to prosecute Portable if he is found guilty of any criminal offence.
