Man Lands In Trouble After Securing Bail Of Pregnant Teenager (See Details)
Sharing his agony on a Facebook post, Prince Gwamnishu Harrison wrote about how he saw the 18-year-old girl, Ogechukwu Ogwuegwi where she was detained and collected her bail.
According to him, Ogechukwu absconded after he did her the kind favour and he has now been arrested in her place as her guarantor.
I saw you pregnant, 18/10/2017 eating inside A Divisional Police Station Asaba. I came to secure the release of someone when I met you.
I asked the officers why a young pregnant woman is been detained and was told you have been detained for 7 days for stealing and your family members can’t meet up with the bail condition (N15,000) imposed by the IPO.
I risked my life, protested and the good DPO(Now Retired) ordered for your release at about 9:15pm. I gave you and your brother my phone number to call and the next morning your brother called that the police took you to Magistrate court Asaba, I left all I was doing, drove and picked up Barr Ajuebor Favour who gave reasons to the Magistrate why you should be released on bail.
Magistrate granted bail of One Million Naira and a surty. None was available to take you on bail. Your brother was employed. I wanted to leave you to be taking to Agbor Prison but my conscience kept judging me.
I ASKED MYSELF
I rescued you from the police, why can’t I rescue you again… I think my emotions betrayed me. I perfected your bail, paid everything payable and you got your freedom.
Oge, I know you are innocent of the crime alleged which i promised to help you get Justice. I registered you for medical check up. You were 6 months pregnant and underage and needed all the support.
As I pay off your debt by going to prison, you don’t me any apology, but the following persons deserve your apology.”
