Lagos State Govern­ment on Tuesday has said that the first Deoxy­ribonucleic Acid (DNA) Forensic Centre to be established in Nigeria by any state will become operational by the first quarter of 2017.

It ex­pressed optimism that the centre will ensure seamless administration of justice. At the maiden edi­tion of the Annual Lagos Forensic Symposium in Ikeja, the state Attorney-General and Commis­sioner for Justice, Mr Adeniji Kazeem, has said that me­ticulous processes were being adopted in part­nership with renowned experts in Forensic Sci­ence to ensure that the centre will be among the best in the world. Kazeem also said that the sym­posium, which was organized by the Lagos State Ministry of Justice and ITSI-Biosciences, Johnstown, PA, United States, was part of mea­sures to sensitize stake­holders in the justice ad­ministration system with the view to adequately prepare them for the new technology coming on board. He recalled that since inception, the present ad­ministration of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode had made law, order and security as one of the ma­jor focal points of his ad­ministration, especially with the procurement of multi-billion naira equip­ment for the police and other security agencies.
