Mal-administration of justice and the decay of the law enforcement institutions in Nigeria have resulted in serious moral, social and security decadence. The inability of the National Government and the judiciary as an arm of government to seek redress on the impending situation has invariably resulted in a frustrating and ineffective stance of justice dispensations.
The failure of the judicial system, an ill-equipped corrupt police force, and a decadent prison service which is more like a death trap, have made arrest, trial and detention a miserably delayed and seemingly endless procedure. This incapacity of the law triumvirate has not only humiliated and jeopardized our national integrity but has made the crime rate to soar while human rights are disregarded.
Efficiency has died down due to bankruptcy in law enforcement institutions. Decay and judicial anarchy has replaced justice, equity and fair play. Detention without trial, wrongly executed verdicts, police brutality and prison escape of culprits commonly happen stances nationwide, not to have forgotten the sorry state of our congested prisons.
This research focuses on identifying these faults within the system of law dispensation and the flaws in its administration and seeks to appropriately justify and architectural integration of the three arms in the service of law towards effective dispensation of justice.
The architectural solutions proposed are aimed at providing an enabling law complex for arrest, trial and detention for effective functionality. In satisfying such a social purpose, architecture in the service of humanity can be employed to facilitate law and security systems.The Law Complex Abuja Towards Rapid Dispensation of Justice in Nigeria-Doc
