Three days after he was granted bail by an Ogun State magistrate court, the 30-year-old trader, Joe Fortemose Chinakwe, who made major headlines throughout last week after being arrested by the Police for naming his pet dog 'Buhari', is set to remain in prison.
According to a report by Vanguard, his continued detention in prison is as a result of the family’s inability to meet the bail conditions granted him.
Recall that the presiding Chief Magistrate, B.J Ojikutu, admitted the trader to bail in the sum of N50,000 with two sureties in like sum, who must be regular taxpayers in the state.
Family sources who disclosed to a correspondent on phone, said they were able to raise only N20,000, but could not complete the money.
The source added they have already made passionate appeals to the authorities to accept what they had and release the trader.
As at the time of filing the report, it was not ascertained if their appeals had been accepted but sources said the authorities were still profiling two of his guarantors as at 3.30pm yesterday.
