Abubakar Marafa, an Assistant Inspector-General of Police (AIG) has reiterated that bail remains free.

The man in charge of Zone 6 re-affirmed that bailing of suspects remains free while road blocks remains banned.

Marafa said this in on Tuesday, October 18, 2016 in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State when he visited the state police command.

“There should not be any form of payment for bail as the Inspector-General of Police has mandated that this instruction should be carried to the latter,” he said.

Continuing, the AIG said: “I have received many cases of loss of firearms and any officer who is careless with this will be punished.

“The concerned case would be reviewed and anyone found guilty will be charged to court and be made to pay for the government property he lost.

“Police personnel should place their rifles on-guard so that it would be well protected and secured," he said.

Marafa also said: “The rights of the citizens should also be protected as enshrined in the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria."
