Dear Ogechukwu,
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 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.
