    This is what cash and carry Policing will do to you. The complainant must have bribed either the DPO or other Police officers at the police station where the deseased was locked up for six months before being charged to court. The law is very clear on the issue of bail and when an accused person must be charged to Court in Nigeria. I want the inspector general of Police to look into this matter ASAP.. The Constitutional rights of the deseased was abridged by the Police for locking him up for six months without a bail. That was a civil matter and a bailable offence. Nigeria Police drove him to commit suicide. The Family of the deseased should seek legal redress by suing both the Nigeria Police and the Complainant who reported the matter to the Police.. Maybe then the cash and carry policing in Nigeria will be totally and completely eradicated.. A word is enough for the wise. I’m just saying.
