Bail is free in Nigeria – Police CRU


Nigeria’s Police Complaint Response Unit has stated that bail is free in Nigeria negating the widely held belief that people are expected to pay before they are released on bail.

In a sensitisation drive on social media, Police CRU tweeted: “Bail is free. You are not expected to pay for bail.
Women are equally eligible to stand surety.”

To make the police force more accessible to the citizens, Police CRU have developed multiple means of communication including Whatsapp, Twitter, Facebook and BBM.
