Lagos Completes First Ever DNA Forensic Lab In Nigeria

The Lagos State Government on Sunday confirmed that it had completed the construction of the first ever high-powered DNA Forensic Laboratory in the country.

The State’s Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Adeniji Kazeem, who disclosed this in a statement said skeletal work had already commenced in the lab known as the Lagos State DNA Forensics Centre (LSDFC), and that it would be formally commissioned in coming weeks.

Recall the State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, had last year approved the construction of the DNA forensic lab as part of the criminal justice sector reforms designed to solve crime through technology and fulfil an unmet need for DNA profiling in the country.

This will help a lot especially in Lagos with high rate of infidelity and bastard children.
