Crime and Crime Management in Nigeria Tertiary Institutions
Adebanjo, Margaret Adewunmi
African Higher Education Review, v8 n1 p4-10 Jul 2014
This paper examines crime and its management in Nigerian tertiary institutions. Tertiary institutions today have become arenas for crime activities such as rape, cultism, murder, theft, internet fraud, drug abuse, and examination malpractices. This paper delves into what crime is, and its causes; and the positions of the law on crime management. It recommends that tertiary institutions should device a mechanism of curtailing crime and the rule of the law should be enhanced to reflect; fair hearing, proper funding and staffing of legal departments in tertiary institutions, adequate provision of security personnel, public enlightenment and proper orientation programs for newly admitted students. The government and the respective institutions should further base admissions on academic and moral merit rather than political influence.
