Abstract :

Forensics practice in Nigeria is not a new phenomena with a lot of our law enforcement personnel and other individuals possessing the requisite qualifications but fully unable to practice in the country due to a variety of factors ranging from dearth of facilities, lack of awareness about forensics practice and its attendant benefits and little or no interest from the arms of government amongst others. In this paper, we report on an academic research initiative that produced the Forensics Research Group (FRG) and the Forensics Research and Development Centre (FORDEC), its objectives, membership spread and interest and initiatives put in place to partner other sectors in the study, awareness, propagation and practice of forensic science in Nigeria and especially digital forensics.
