DAILY LAW TIPS
by Onyekachi Umah,Esq.
“Bail Is Free and Constitutional In Nigeria”.
BAIL is free both in any security agency (DSS, Army, police stations, police posts, police headquarters) and any courts across Nigeria. Police can grant bail to a Suspect and a Court can grant bail to an Accused Person (Defendant) or Convicted Person. Bail requires no Fee, Gift, Processing Fee, Management Fee, Surety Fee, Appreciation Fee, File Fee or Payment whatsoever. Even the Surety (locally known as Shorty) is not suppose to pay money for bail rather is to sign a bail bond.
My authority are section 35 of the Constitution of Federal Republic of Nigeria,1999, section 27 of Police Act, sections 17 and 118 of the Criminal Procedure Act and sections 129,340 and 341 of Criminal Procedure Code.
