The NBA, in collaboration with MacArthur Foundation, on April 28, 2022, held a stakeholder meeting at The Colossus hotel, Ikeja.
The goal of the event’s organisers was predicated on the domestication and implementation of the Administration of the Criminal Justice Act 2015 in the 36 states of the federation. Still, there was first the need to assess compliance with the provisions of the ACJL in Lagos state (being the pioneer state). Thus, the apt theme: Implementation Assessment of the Criminal Justice Law of Lagos State: examining successes and challenges.
The session had representatives of the judiciary, Ministry of Justice, the Nigeria police and the correctional centre.
Valuable recommendations were made by the discussants in making the Criminal Law of Lagos State more effective and effeicient.
