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


“A confessional statement made by an accused person, just like an admission in civil procedure is the strongest evidence of guilt on the part of the accused person. It is even stronger than the evidence of an eye witness because it came from “the horse’s mouth” who is the accused person himself stating that he actually committed the offence charged.” Per SAMUEL CHUKWUDUMEBI OSEJI, JSC in UTTO v. STATE (2021-LCER-40501-SC) (Pp 16 – 17; Paras F – B)
