"This is, equally, the explanation for the proposition that a claim for special damages succeeds only on the strict proof of the specifically pleaded facts in relation to the sum claimed. Where items of special damages are not specified and strictly proved as in the instant case, recovery of same will not be granted, Anyanwu and Ors v Uzowuaka and Ors [2009] 13 NWLR (pt. 1159) 445; Nwanji v. Coast Services (Nig) Z.fe/(2004) LPELR - 2106 (SC)".
