MANDIBA'S DECISION





"As a young man I decided to study law with a view to using what little talent I had in the service of justice and the cause of my people. Like many before me and those in my generation, I entered legal practice with a determination to employ my skills and training to atleast alleviate the suffering of the oppressed if not to reserve it"                                                                                                                      ––NELSON MANDELA                                                                           {Address presented at the Zionist Christian church Easter conference - 1994}


A COMPARISON OF CAUSATION IN HOMICIDE UNDER COMMON LAW AND NIGERIAN CRIMINAL CODE.


In every case where it is alleged that death has resulted from the act of a person, a causal link between that death and the act must be established and proved, in a criminal proceedings, beyond reasonable doubt. The first and logical step in the process of such proof is to prove the cause of death. Where there is no certainty as to the cause of death, the enquiry should proceed no further. Where the cause of death is ascertained, the next step in the enquiry is to link that cause of death with the act (or omission) of the person alleged to have caused it

War is in no way a relationship of man

War is in no way a relationship of man with man but a relationship between states, in which individuals are enemies only by accident; not as men, nor even as citizens, but as soldiers (...). Since the object of war is to destroy the enemy state, it is legitimate to kill the latter’s defenders as long as they are carrying arms; but as soon as they lay them down and surrender, they cease to be enemies or agents of the enemy, and again become mere men, and it is no longer legitimate to take their lives.
