« New Data from the Nigeria’s National Bureau of Statistics suggests Nigerian Prison may hold more innocents than the guilty criminals.
« The reports, covering data from 2011 to 2015 shows that 72.5% of Nigeria’s total prison population are inmates serving time while awaiting trail & without being sentenced.
« The alarming figure highlights key flaws in Nigeria’s criminal justice system with proceedings often going on for years without conclusion.
« While a lawyer often cite a large number of cases being tried as a reason for long drawn-out trails, they charged inmates on the other side of the devide often spend years waiting to get convicted or win back their freedom.
« In one instance, an inmate accused of murder spent 16 years in a prison in Nigeria’s Southeast being tried.
