Three-quarters of Nigerians fear becoming the victim of crime, according to a survey by the CLEEN Foundation. The research also finds that most crime in the country goes unreported to police and that one-fourth of those surveyed have been asked to pay a bribe to government officials before a service is rendered. The 2012 National Crime and Safety Survey identifies Nigerian views on crime, corruption, and performance of the criminal justice system, tracking changes over time and by region. Results provide information to the government and criminal justice system and can assist in the development of improved efforts to ensure security and safety.
