EVIDENCE – EXPERT OPINION/EVIDENCE – Position of the law with regard to expert opinion/evidence


“By virtue of Section 68 of the Evidence Act, opinions of experts are stand-alone evidence upon which the Court can form opinion. Any other fact(s) that has bearing upon an expert opinion only becomes relevant (by virtue of Section 71 of the Evidence Act) if it goes to support or contradict the expert opinion.” Per PETER-ODILI, in BERENDE v. FRN (2021-LCER-40453-SC) (Pp 65 – 65 Paras A – B)
