Stakeholders participating in the Juvenile Justice Administration Summit in Lagos on Thursday called on prison authorities to stop detention of juveniles with adults, saying it caused more damages than correction.

They made the call at the stakeholders summit with the theme: “Reforming Juvenile Justice Administration in Nigeria, ending the detention of juveniles with Adults.”

South-West Coordinator, National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), Mr Lucas Koyejo, said that child offenders should not be imprisoned, especially where the offence could be dealt with by fine.
