Challenges of effective investigation as fulcrum to efficient criminal justice administration in Nigeria


Onah Vitalis Chukwuma, Onodugo Ifeanyi Chris, Audu Friday

This article examines the link between effective criminal investigations and the effectiveness of Nigeria's criminal justice system. It goes on to discuss the difficulties of criminal investigations and offers recommendations for strengthening criminal investigation efforts. Eight criminal investigation issues were identified and examined. The public's low crime reporting culture, a lack of police funding, corruption, insufficient training of police officers in criminal investigations, delayed duplication of investigation case files, missing investigation case files, a lack of forensic science facilities and experts, and poor public records management are among the challenges. The recommendations for strengthening criminal investigative activities are focused on these eight concerns, and they span funding, legislation, policy change, structural reform, staff training, and non-governmental organization (NGO) and other stakeholder action.
