At Amadi/Abuloma Road Police Station in Port Harcourt and in fact all police stations in Rivers State, lawyers have been reduced to bargainers for reduction of bail sums imposed by police. My experience last week was terrible. The IPO will tell you that the DPO is interested in the matter therefore the suspect must cough out huge sums of money else he will be thrown into the cell.
There is collusion by the senior police officers and the IPOs to extort from people.
I have experienced this at the Abuloma police station twice and at various other stations when I was invited to help secure the release of clients.
Please look into this endless string of corruption.
