The Role Of Research In Forensics For National Development


"Science walks forward on two feet: theory and experiment....but continous progress is only achieved by the use of both". (Robert .A. Millikan)

 Assuming the Nigerian government has a problem it wants solved, it should fund the right agency with the capability to handle such a task. This agency pools scientists and experts from within and without to undertake a research work and develops a technology that is first of its kind in the world.  Nigeria uses this technology to solve its problem - a world problem. Now its our technology-our solution. A solution that the UK, US, Europe and the rest need. I don’t think we would give it out for free. Would we?

Forensics In Nigeria: Are We Not Losing Out?


Imagine a Nigeria where  rape cases end with  conviction of  the rapist.. Life imprisonment. Imagine we have a robust and state-of-the-art laboratory second to none in Africa and competes for quality and standard with others such as the FBI’s.
