Customary Law in Nigeria Through the Cases

by A.A. Kolajo

In Nigeria, rules have been handed down orally from generation to generation and now form the country's customary law. The absence of the codification of these rules has presented difficulties in ascertaining them. This book helps to overcome this difficulty by presenting various aspects of customary law stating clearly that no single uniform set of customs prevails throughout the country. It examines the general characteristics of family property, determination of family property and acquisition of land under Bini Customary Law. It also discusses validity, proof and application of customary law, customary law succession, tenancy, arbitration, marriage and legitimacy, and legitimation under customary law.
