The investigation by @fisayosoyombo on #CashAndCarryPrison isn't getting as much airtime as it should because for many people it's a #longread. So, here's a brief peek into some of its highlights in pics & bits
There's a booming market in the criminal justice system from the magistrates court to the prisons. Everything has its prize - bail, booze, babes, sex, sodomy, drugs, you just pay up & you'll be just fine
At #IkoyiPrison, for instance, there is an apartment called #NiconLucury. "If u want to have sex, just tell the warders. They will bring a girl to the Nicon Luxury for you, set the 2 of you up; you f**k, you pay." The rate is said to be about N50k per night
#CashAndCarryPrison is a very lucrative market. It has different pricing mechanisms at different ends. At the prison end, pricing is by volume, at others, at the court end, it seems to be by margin. The end result? Magistrates, Prosecutors, Warders make #LoadsaMoney
In @fisayosoyombo's, Magistrate granted him bail: "remanded in prison custody, 2 sureties in like sum of N500k each, N150k to be paid into the Registrar’s account by each surety, sureties to be from father’s side of the family." The N150k x 2 was for keeps
It's not just the entire system that bleeds detainees, prisoners & their families, different units in the within the prison are also set up as profit centres for those who run them. The amounts of money they make can be staggering
Prison officers can go to great lengths to protect their #CashCow from being being sussed out. At Ikoyi prison, when they found out modest recording instrument on @fisayosoyombo, Asst. Chief Warder, Sunkanmi Iajdunola, gave him the beating of his life
As for prison record:
“We'll delete ur name from records. There'll be no trace of u. Nobody will have any evidence that u ever came here, so forget whatever the implication is. My brother’s friend did it before & it cost him only N10k. I’ll link u to the warder who did for him."
There's really no way to summarise @fisayosoyombo's investigation. These are just teasers into his story of #CashAndCarryPrison. These teasers may also give you a sense of why some folks who keep this system oiled wld like to lay their hands on him.
