EVIDENCE – IDENTIFICATION EVIDENCE – Position of the law on identification evidence


“The identification of the accused as a participant in the commission of the crime is a crucial factor in the successful prosecution of a case of armed robbery. Identification evidence is that which tends to show that the person charged is the same person seen at the locus criminis. See: Nwaturuocha v. The State (supra); Ogoala v. The State (1991) 12 NWLR (Pt.175) 509.” Per KEKERE-EKUN, J.S.C. in ATTO MABA v. THE STATE (2020- LCER-39168-SC) at p. 20 – p. 21
