The Time has come for Nigeria to join the International Community’s efforts in applying advancements in forensic science to law enforcement, criminal investigations and National Security.
This is because forensic science is advancing in numerous directions and widely applied to solving crimes and criminality.
These were views of speakers, at the beginning of a three days Lagos Forensic Symposium, organised by Lagos State Ministry of Justice, as reported by our Security and judiciary correspondent, Jide Alli-Balogun.
According to the State Attorney-General and Commissioner of Justice, Adeniji Kazeem, government had inspired and re-energised the criminal justice system, to fight crime, but was only halfway there, because with additional impetus of DNA forensics, getting conviction of suspects becomes a whole lot easier.
The Lagos Attorney-General and Commissioner of Justice, Adeniji Kazeem, said his ministry was committed to ensuring that scientific methods of deducing crimes were introduced into the criminal justice system and sustained.
