EVIDENCE – CONFESSIONAL STATEMENT – Whether confession is the best form of evidence in a criminal trial


“It is trite law that short of an eye witness account, a confessional statement is the best and strongest evidence possible against an accused person, as long as it has passed the verification test. See Oseni v. State (2012) 5 NWLR (pt 1293) 351.” Per JOHN INYANG OKORO, JSC in BERENDE v. FRN (2021-LCER-40453-SC) (Pp 67 – 67 Paras C – D)
