Spokesman of Ogun State police Command, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi in a statement on Thursday, said Portable reported at the police headquarters at about 5pm with his father and manager.
Oyeyemi explained that the suspect was immediately ordered to be taken to the Public Complaint Bureau office by the Commissioner of police, CP Lanre Bankole, where he was interrogated about his role in the assault melted to the boy in the video.
Portable was thereafter granted an administrative bail after his statement was taken by police operatives under caution.
The offence committed is a bailable one couple with strike action embarked upon by the Civil servants in the State which led to the shutdown of courts, according to Abimobola.
Part of the statement read, “However, since the offence committed is a bailable one, and couple with the strike action embarked upon by the Civil servants in the State which also affected our courts, the suspect was released to a reliable surety who promised to produce him anytime he is needed”.
