How to get free bail in Nigeria

BAIL IS FREE

BAIL IS FREE

Even though Nigeria Police authorities prefer that the public and international community believe bail if free in Nigeria police station, victims hardly get it at no cost. 

A victim, Saviour  Akatugba, narrates his experience and how he secured a free bail in Ogun state.

“Many times I have heard the Police say you do not need to pay money to get bail.

“Some days ago some Police officers asked my in-law to pay N20, 000.00 before he could bail his wife and younger brother held at Ajuwon Police Station in Akute, Ogun state.

“Often, we are told to call certain police numbers to register our issues and get them addressed.

“I picked one of those numbers and called for over 24 hours to register a grievance but none is picking my call.

“I kept calling hoping it will prove my perception of the Police Force wrong. I told myself I will continue calling until l get a response on this matter within what the law stipulates.

“When I was able to reach the state Police spokesperson he said he was in a meeting that I should call back in about 20 minutes. So I decided to call the Commissioner of Police, when I called him, he immediately intervened in the matter and asked that my brother and in-law be released and that the long pending issue should be resolved immediately with paying any N20, 000 as earlier stipulated by those officers.

And my relatives were immediately released, and I was impressed at the way the CP handled the issue. Also hinting that bail is free!! Beware!!!
