The Role of Forensic Science in Criminal Investigations and Admissibility of Forensic Evidence in Nigerian Courts

In law, forensic science is invaluable in the pursuit of justice. This is because the proof of crimes is a very delicate transaction, having at its centre the innocence or guilt of an accused person. The law recognizes the importance of forensic evidence in prosecuting criminal cases. When scientific methods are rigorously used, without bias or prejudice, they can provide cogent evidence in uncovering and proving the crime.
