Singer Habeeb Okikiola aka Portable has been granted bail by a Magistrate Court in the Ifo Local Government Area of Ogun State.

The singer was arraigned on Monday by the Ogun Police Command.

He was arraigned on five-count bordering on assault before the court presided over by the chief magistrate, A.S Shoneye.

The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Delivering his ruling on the bail application by the singer’s counsel, the presiding judge said the offences are bailable and granted him bail with bail bond of N300,000 and two surety who must reside within the jurisdiction of the honorable court.

In another development of assault and stealing, he was admitted to bail to the tune of N500,000 with two sureties.

The court, however, ruled that the defendant be transferred to the Ilaro correctional centre pending the time his bail requirements are met.

The case has been adjourned to April 26 for the commencement of trial.
