Going by their experiences of the years, Nigerians are of the belief that the order given by the new Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase, that the police should not collect money for bail at their stations, will not be obeyed by the rank and file of the force.

57 percent of respondents of Pulse Nigeria Poll where the poser was put up, think that the order is mere hot air as many IGPs before Arase had made such pronouncements but the police had never obeyed such orders.

Recall that shortly after being named the new IGP, Arase came out with the order that the Nigerian police should stop the practice of collecting money to bail offenders out of their various stations.

The question for the poll was:

Do you think the Nigerian Police will adhere to the no bail payment order by the IGP?

How Nigeria voted:

43 % - Yes, they will

57 % - No, they will not

How would you vote?
