Controversial Nigerian singer, Habeeb Okikiola, better known as Portable, has taken legal action against his mechanic after he publicly advised him to sell his Mercedes G-Wagon as scrap metal.
Recall that a few days ago, the Zazu Zeh star was involved in a ghastly accident that wrecked his newly acquired Mercedes Benz Brabus.
Following the incident, the damaged vehicle was taken to a mechanic for repair, who then filmed and posted the wrecked car online.
In the video, the mechanic candidly shared his thoughts on the wrecked luxury car, suggesting that it would be better off sold as scrap.
According to the mechanic, the automobile was severely damaged, and repairing it would be prohibitively expensive.
“Sell your G-Wagon as scrap at Ladipo Market so they will use it as spare parts. The whole G-Wagon is a complete write-off. The engine of the G-Wagon has been affected by the accident, and repairing it is almost impossible,” he said.
This did not sit well with the singer, who viewed it as an invasion of his privacy and subsequently took legal action against the mechanic.
The mechanic was reportedly arrested following the viral video.
In a video making the rounds, the mechanic was seen being lectured about the singer’s reputation, in what appeared to be a police station.
He was instructed to publicly apologize to the singer, which he did. The mechanic apologized, stating that he was unaware that the car belonged to Portable.
He expressed remorse for any inconvenience his actions may have caused the singer.
“A car was brought to my company for repair, and I gave my honest opinion based on what I saw. It has come to my knowledge that the car belongs to Zazuu, which is Portable. Additionally, I have seen videos circulating without my consent. I take this opportunity to apologize to Zazuu for any inconvenience the video has caused you,” he said.
