Effective Administration Of Criminal Justice Workshop, Abuja, Nigeria

Criminal justice system in Nigeria is fraught with inefficiencies starting with investigation of crimes, pre-trial delays and delays in the actual trials. These inefficiencies work against the rights of the suspects who are subjected to long periods of unlawful detention amongst other degrading and inhuman treatments which violates their fundamental human rights.
