Seun Egbegbe, who has spent two months in Ikoyi prison for theft, revealed that he is unable to find two sureties with the profile required by the court.
The judge had reportedly ruled that the two sureties in the like sum of N2.5 million each must be: a civil servant on level 16 who deposits his international passport, and a property owner in Lagos metropolis who deposits a certificate of occupancy.
Both sureties are also to be mandatorily profiled with their office and home addresses verified.
“Where do they expect him to get the sureties? who would leave the passport and certificate of occupancy with the court until the case which may last four years ends? Who will risk losing N2.5 million as surety for a case that has not even really started?” a close associate of Egbebe stated.
That is why before anyone get involved in a bad act, he/she should first think of consequences.
