“The attention of the police administration has been drawn to a social media publication in which the Northern Regional NPP Chairman, Adam Bantima Samba is seen claiming the effect that he will make a record by breaking police principle of not granting bail or administering bail at night”, a statement from the police service said.
It added, “We wish to state categorically that there is no such principle or rule that forbids the police or clothe the police with the authority not to grant bail at night”.
The Service, however, noted that bail is a constitutional right and therefore administered on any day including weekends and holidays and at all times.
It noted that the statement of the politician is “erroneous” and a “clear demonstration of ignorance of the law” on his part.
