Abubakar, Shehu Ahmad Tijani ; Olatoke, Olukayode (2016)
It is common ground that the major source of Nigerian law of forts i case law, particularly English Decisions which form part of the sources of Nigerian law of torts. Although, there are Nigerian Courts decisions which form part of the sources of Nigerian law of torts, however, the available textbooks on law of torts in our tertiary institutions and universities based their information, especially torts of defamation of character on old English cases and where Nigerian cases are referred to, they are not recent ones.
