THE NIGERIA POLICE FORENSIC INVESTIGATION FAILURE
Cyber-crime, kidnapping, armed robbery, terrorism, fraud, corruption, etc. are some of the new types of crimes plaguing Nigerian society presently. The Nigerian Police, the governmental agency with the primary responsibility for combating crime, and maintaining law and order in the society seems ill-equipped, and lacking the requisite skills, manpower and morale for adequately responding to Nigeria’s crime problem. Many commentators have therefore referred to Nigeria as one of the most dangerous places in the world, and some even describe Nigeria as a failed state. The primary role of government is the safeguarding of people, property and the maintenance of law and order in society. The Police are the agency charged with this onerous responsibility. The Police failure in the maintenance of law and order in the society raises questions about the effectiveness and legitimacy of the government. Findings from this study support the characterization of policing in Nigeria as “going dark” and recommend the federal government’s massive funding of the police to bring it into the 21st century policing outfit. The federal government should make it a priority to enhance police capacity building, intelligence-information gathering, forensic skills and its democratic policing capability.
