CRIME AND PUBLIC SAFETY IN NIGERIA
The primary duty of a criminal justice system is to dispense criminal justice in accordance with due process or rule of law. In practical terms, criminal justice refers to the determination of the guilt or innocence of a suspect and the allocation of punishment that is fair and proportional to a convict’s offence, with due recognition and protection of the rights of offenders, victims and society. Due process implies fair, open and impartial trial of a suspect. The essence of due process is to prevent coercion and persecution rather than prosecution of suspects.

WAGING PEACE IN WEST AFRICA:
A GOOD PRACTICES GUIDE TO DEMOCRATIC GOVERNANCE OF THE SECURITY SECTOR
The 15 countries of the West Africa sub-region, organized under the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), stretch from Senegal in the west to Nigeria in the east. Since the Third Wave of Democratization from the late 1980s, most of these countries ‘have established rule of law, functioning state institutions and relatively good governance.’ Such is the tempo of democratization that in Ghana, Senegal, and Benin Republic incumbent ruling parties have been defeated at the polls, leading to peaceful alternation in governance, while Nigeria has enjoyed the longest spell of civilian rule in its post-colonial history. Furthermore, the ECOWAS countries have also .......Read more
