In order to have an effective criminal record/database, the Federal Government has launched a central database where records of arrest will be uploaded by the relevant agencies.



The Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami, launched the database in Abuja on Friday.

Explaining the rationale behind the project, Mr. Malami said the office of the AGF was mandated by section 29(5) of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act 2015 to establish an electronic and manual database of all records of arrest at the Federal and state level.

The AGF explained that the record system will allow all relevant agencies to upload their record of arrest with an approved passcode which will be made available to them.

The Solicitor General of the Federation and Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Justice, Mrs Beatrice Jedy-Agba who represented the AGF, said it would enable all arrests in Nigeria to be properly captured for monitoring.
