Meanwhile, Portable had recently alleged that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is planning to arrest him upon his return to Nigeria.

Naija News reports that the ‘Zazu’ hitmaker, who was abroad when he made the claim, aired the allegations during a recent Instagram live session with fans.

Portable’s troubles stem from a call to action by a self-proclaimed social media activist, known only as VeryDarkMan, who has reportedly urged the EFCC to investigate the singer for his treatment of the national currency.
