Demand Receipt if Police Ask For Bail – FPRO Olumuyiwa Adejobi



The Nigerian Police Force (NPF) has made it clear that bail is free and has banned its officers from collecting money henceforth.

The Force Public Relations Officer, FPRO, Prince Olumuyiwa Adejobi, told Nigerians what to do if asked to pay bail money in any of their stations.

Adejobi stated this when he was responding to a post on X, formerly known as Twitter, that asked if bail was free.

A concerned Nigerian, Emmanuel Oyemachi on X highlighted the issue. Oyemachi asked: “Sir is bail truly free?”

The Force PRO Adejobi maintained that it was illegal for policemen to demand bail payment.

“Police administrative bail is free. “If anyone demands bail money, you too demand an invoice or receipt to prove payment. If he can’t issue it, don’t pay. That is a fraud. I have said this severally. “Bail bond is just a document or form. And we produce it at the Nigeria Police printing press in Ikeja. Adejobi said.

All any unit needs do is to request for any document, it will be released. The IGP is planning to even expand the capacity of the printing press to produce all the papers and documents we need in the police. The printing press is headed by a commissioner of Police who has his budget to produce what we need. So offices and units are to visit the place with approval, and the documents will be released.” He added

However, the FPRO Adejobi then recounted his honest years in the service.

He said: “I have never collected bail money before. I started my career in Sagamu in 2006, and you can go there to find out. I was not ready for nonsense. Those who are elders and grown-up ones in Sagamu would testify to that. Sagamu was peaceful in my time as the operations officer. …. Muyiwa… sagamu, lol,. A year, 8 months, I moved to admin work, and later PR line in 2008, and I have been in PR line up till now.”

Love Knows No Age: Breaking Down the Taboo of Younger Men Dating Older Women in Nigeria



As I explore Nigeria’s rich cultural heritage, I’m struck by the harmful biases that exist.

One example is the stigma against older women dating younger men – a double standard that restricts women’s choices and reinforces harmful gender stereotypes.

In Nigeria, a woman’s value is often tied to her age, with younger women being prized for their beauty and fertility.

what about older women who desire love and companionship? Why are they shamed for their relationships, forced to hide their love due to societal pressure?

The double standard is clear. Older men marrying younger women is widely accepted, even celebrated, while older women in relationships with younger men face judgment and discrimination.

This issue affects men too, who are trapped by societal norms, forced to conform to traditional gender roles and expectations.

It’s time to challenge these outdated norms and embrace love in all its forms by promoting gender equality and inclusivity.

Let’s look to inspiring examples of older women who have defied societal norms and found love with younger men. Women like Gabrielle Union, who has spoken publicly about her relationship with her husband, Dwyane, who is several years younger than her or women like Viola Davis, who has embraced her love for her husband, Julius Tennon, despite their significant age difference.

These women are trailblazers, paving the way for a new generation of Nigerians who refuse to be bound by societal norms.

They show us that love knows no age, no gender, and no boundaries. It’s time for us to follow their lead and create a society that truly celebrates love in all its forms.

Research has shown that relationships with significant age gaps can be just as fulfilling and long-lasting as those with smaller age gaps. In fact, some studies suggest that older women in relationships with younger men may experience increased happiness and satisfaction due to the younger partner’s energy and enthusiasm.

By letting go of societal constraints and embracing our true desires, we can experience increased self-esteem, confidence, and overall life satisfaction.

we can create a society where everyone can love freely, without fear of judgment or rejection.
