CRIMINAL LAW AND PROCEDURE – INTENTION – Whether in law a person is taken to have intended the natural consequence of his action


“…I agree with the Court below that the law presumes that a man intends the natural and probable consequences of his act. However, the test to be applied to the circumstances of each case is the objective test as opposed to the subjective test of what a reasonable man in the street would contemplate as the probable result of his acts.” Per JOHN INYANG OKORO, JSC in WOWEM v. STATE (2021-LCER-40502-SC) (Pp 23 – 23; Paras A – B)
