A Nigerian lawyer identified as Malachy Odo has taken to the popular micro-blogging platform, Twitter, to reveal the illegal steps involved in meeting bail conditions in Lagos state.
Odo said that no matter how silly the offence might be, a person would likely spend a few days in the prison once they are charged before a magistrate court.

Noting that in cases where the family of the offender does not have the requirements needed, they may have to hire the service of a professional surety.
Sadly, from the professional surety contacted to all the departments involved in ensuring the perfection of the offender’s bail and the prison officer who is in charge of their final release, Odo stated that the offender’s family will part with some money.
