EVIDENCE – ADMISSION/ADMITTED FACT(S) – When will a fact be deemed admitted; whether facts admitted need further proof


“…This averment was never either controverted by the Appellant nor denied. It was clearly also deemed as admitted in law. Further on this point, it is a firmly settled principle of law that facts admitted need no further proof and same is deemed established. See NAS Ltd v. UBA Plc (2005) 14 NWLR (Pt. 945)421 @435 A-B, where the Supreme Court, per Akintan JSC, held as follows: “The position of the law is that facts admitted require no further proof.” Per MARY UKAEGO PETER-ODILI, JSC in BRONWEN ENERGY TRADING LTD. v. OAN OVERSEAS AGENCY (NIG) LTD & ORS (2022-LCER-46529-SC) (Pp 30 – 31; Paras F – A)
