On Wednesday, Portable was given a three-day ultimatum to report himself to the police.
This was after the singer resisted attempts by the police to arrest him and also referred to himself as “a federal government liability”.
Oyeyemi had earlier told TheCable Lifestyle that if the controversial singer — born Habeeb Okikiola — failed to surrender himself, the police will “go after him.”
“Yes, but his father has promised to produce him on or before Friday,” he said.

“So, we are expecting him to show up and if he doesn’t come, we are going after him.
“Only then will he know that we have the wherewithal to get him because he is not bigger than the law.”
The state police spokesperson said the arrest warrant became necessary after Portable refused to honour the police invitation on several occasions.
