"At all times the accused person has the evidential burden of proving his defence or casting reasonable doubts on the prosecution’s case. When he asserts a defence, it behooves him to prove it. Section 131,136(1) and 137 of the Evidence Act,2011 are clear and very material on this". PER E. EKO, J.S.C

 

PER J.I.OKORO,J.S.C IN THE CASE OF AKINYEDE OLAIYA V THE STATE;LEGALPEDIA CITATION: LER[2017]SC.562/2014
