The Minister of Science and Technology, Ogbonnaya Onu, says the Federal Government is working with forensic experts to provide evidence needed to fight crimes across the country.

The minister said Nigeria had all the resources at its disposal to overcome the current security challenges soon.

Onu said this at the weekend when he received the president and members of the executive council of the Chartered Institute of Computer Forensics of Nigeria in his office in Abuja.

He said the application of cybersecurity would go a long way in reducing malpractices and fraud in government ministries, departments and agencies, and the organised private sector.

Onu said Nigeria should produce more forensic experts to help in providing evidences for prosecuting crimes.

He said crimes would be reduced in the country when there were many forensic scientists.

He said: “Nigeria wants transparency in governance to eliminate all fraud in all government activities and in the private sector, which will help to reduce crime in the country.”

Earlier, the president of the institute of Nigeria Prof. Peter Olayiwola, said they visited to seek the ministry’s support for quick passage of the Chartered Computer Forensics Bill.
