ANUEYIAGU V. DEPUTY SHERIFF, KANO

"The office of Sheriff is created by the Sheriffs and Civil Process Act (Chapter 205 of the 1948 edition) and under the definitions in that Act the Sheriff includes a Deputy Sheriff. The Act clearly contemplates in Form 9 of the Schedule, that the Sheriff may be a party in his official capacity to legal proceedings, but it does not expressly provide that he may sue in that capacity. Section 32 of the Act, however, authorised the Sheriff to take a bond in his official capacity, and it seems to me to follow that the legislature must be taken to have authorised him to sue on that bond."
