  1. Arm robbers are not supposed to be granted bail no matter any amount. Well am not surprised because money moves our magistrates anyhow.

  2. Ouch! Evidence of tax payment by surety will be difficult since apart from civil servants whose taxes are forcefully deducted at the time salaries are paid most of the populace pay pittance by way of general tax, if at all and will not offer to bail anybody in order not to expose the secret of just how little tax they pay.
    And with the little matter of having no fixed address, it is not likely the bail condition will be met any time soon.. Oga tiff e be like say you go get fixed address at your temporary accommodation in jail for a while. Enjoy!!!

  3. Maryf…it is part of the ACJA act of 2015 (i can’t really remember the section) it is called non custodial punishment… which include bail out

  4. What av they been able to do to his God fathers, that is d politicians who are stealing billions, are they not moving freely.

    Let’s just add armed robbery to the list of professional jobs in Nigeria. Bcos that’s all they are good at both home and abroad.
