The Federal Ministry of Justice has set up of an investigative unit aimed at coordinating criminal cases in the country.

The Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, believes the unit is needed to address the consistent rejection of vital evidence, in the course of prosecuting criminal cases on behalf of the government.

“This unit shall investigate and form part of the every investigation in Nigeria for a robust investigation and successful prosecution of such cases,” he stated.

Also as part of efforts to decongest the nation’s prisons in the next two years, the Federal Government is set to review cases of inmates awaiting trial for five years and above and those on death row. (Channels TV)
