Can I Win Case Of Self Defence On Murder by Weretuntun: 6:18am On Jan 23
HOW ARE GOING TO PROVE SELF DEFENCE TO POLICE, IF I KILL SOMEONE TRYING TO KILL OR HARM ME.

Nothing like self defense in Nigerian criminal law. If anyone is trying to harm you, report it to the police so they have a paper trail before anything happens. But that doesn't give you the all clear to kill someone in self defense. You will need irrefutable video evidence to prove innocence in any murder case. Goodluck.

Police no dey hear self defence oo...na who them catch be murderer

Self defence is hard to prove in a law court especially when it comes to two fighting.

Even when proved you can still be sentenced for manslaughter which carries another heavy sentence.

All in all, we should pray and Avoid situations that will lead to conflicts as much as necessary.

If you kill an attacker in self defense, during home invasion alert your neighbors, they will be your witness, else better find a way to dispose the body/bodies secretly.

That is true o, best not to get caught, it is also important to have a police friend, if u have one, he can take the case from you, your police friend will claim that he shot and killed the attacker or assailants as the case may be.
Case close.

HELL NO COMRADES
Nothing like self defence exists in Nigeria, when you see the attack coming run away
Re: Can I Win Case Of Self Defence On Murder by vdestro: 4:41pm On Jan 23
This is where you see that the difference between The Law and legal.

Under.Law you have a right of self defence. It is even provided for in the fake law called "Legal" via their fake law book called The Criminal Code.

But because the same people doing the robbery and murdering are still the same people sitting as Legal, therefore the police and the Nigerian courts refuse to respect The Law of self defence.

But i believe if more and more criminals are killed and the case qualifies for self defence, if people continue to attack the fake legal high courts with it, they would one day break and uphold like the court that has just finally allowed lawyers to have and join their own society of their own choice (as is their right) apart from the NBA.

Self defence is part of your God given and nalienable right whether the king likes it or not.

Let me bring one judgment from a court showing how powerful man is.

“'The poorest man may in his cottage bid defiance to all the forces of the Crown. It may be frail – its roof may shake – the wind may blow through it – the storm may enter – the rain may enter – but the King of England cannot enter – all his force dares not cross the threshold of the ruined tenement(without the poor man's permission)"

That's why.Africa is backward and under the hand of bad leaders. Oyinbo will shoot you dead when you break The Law..That is why they have a better judiciary and a better crime proving facility (police) because tgey they all know their natural and God given Rights and are ready to defend to death even if the land burns.

They know as long as you never destroy the evil, the evil will always rule and enslave and destroy you.

Its not hard to prove. And the correct Law to be applied when self defence is upheld, is absolvtion and not mitigation.

The surviver has a right to live and it is most unjust that he is punished for keeping himself alive, whlie he was in The Law, when his out of Law attacker, came to deprive him of his life. No court in the world can justify it. Which is why in other Law aware jurisdictions, it is A very solid defence. Eg in texas will be shot for trespass.

Funny, i remember hundeyin acknowledged.that the police have a right of self defence but did the fake law called Constitution not say all of us are equal, therefore, if the police, army etc have that right, i do to.

Their right no pass my own.

That's what I am talking about. I am saying the response of this fake legal courts are wrong and unlawful. Which they are doing because they are protecting their master (govt) who are the kings of lawbreaking as Wike has shown.

Self defence is a Natural Right which absolves from guilt and no court in Nigeria can ever justify refusing it.
