Barely 24 hours after the Ogun State police command threatened to arrest singer Portable over an alleged threat to life, his driver has reportedly killed a motorcyclist.
Portable’s yet-to-be-known driver, said to be on top speed, allegedly killed the commercial motorcyclist around Ilogbo, Ado – Odo Ota local government area of the state, on Tuesday afternoon.
The state police spokesperson, Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed the incident.
Mr Oyeyemi said the investigation would unravel facts that led to the unfortunate incident.
“The accident occurred at the Ilogbo area in Ogun state, where one of Portable’s aides hit a motorcyclist. The victim did not survive as he died on his way to the hospital.
“We are not sure if the guy in question is (was) drunk or not; we should all wait for the outcome of the investigation.
But with this, we are resounding our 48-hour ultimatum given to the hip-pop singer; this request will elapse today, Wednesday.
He will do himself well to be honourable and turn himself in for investigation.”
However, Portable has denied the incident.
Reacting to the news of the accident, Portable said: “I didn’t kill anyone, but I am pained that the victim died.”
The singer noted that he was at his son’s naming ceremony when the accident occurred.
However, Portable promised to visit the hospital and reach out to the accident victim’s family.
