Hence, the database must contain at least the records of arrest drawn for Register of Arrest completed at various police stations and security agencies across Nigeria showing particulars of arrested persons.
Particulars of arrested person includes; alleged offence, date and circumstances of arrest, full name, occupation and residential address as well as height, photograph, full fingerprint impressions and any other means of identification.
