    ADMISIBILITY OF CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE:
    A PERSPECTIVE FROM THE CONVENTIONAL AND SHARIAH COURTS IN NIGERIA

    by
    N.A.O. IJAIYA, Ph.D*

    ABSTRACT

    It is not in all cases of criminal matters that the prosecution will be able to lay his hands on direct evidence to prove his case beyond reasonable doubt. This is because there may be supervening circumstances that will make it impossible to directly prove an offence or certain occurrence, hence the need to prove through circumstantial evidence in other words known as indirect evidence. The legal consequence of this kind of evidence is that the judge or qadi (Islamic court judge) will infer the truth of the matter by looking at the circumstances surrounding the fact in issue. The paper therefore seeks to examine the nature of circumstantial evidence under the Nigerian and Islamic legal systems with a view to bringing out, if any, the similarities and dissimilarities in both systems. The questions therefore are: Is the Islamic principle of circumstantial evidence the same under the Nigerian law? Under what circumstances can circumstantial evidence be admitted in both legal systems? To answer these posers, the paper adopts a qualitative method of legal research, meaning that the research is library based. It therefore critically examines the provisions of the Nigerian Constitution, 1999 as amended, Law of Evidence No. 8 Laws of Federation of Federal Republic of Nigeria, 2011, Nigeria Judicial precedent amongst others on one hand. On the other hand, both primary (Qur'an, and Hadith) and secondary sources (Ijma' and Qiyass) of Islamic law are equally analyzed to know the scope and limitation in the applicability of the principle under consideration. The paper finds no controversy and that both legal systems recognizes circumstantial evidence as one of the various ways of proving fact(s) in issue. It also finds that the admissibility of circumstantial evidence to a fact in issue is restricted to a fact not related to serious offences. It therefore concludes that circumstantial evidence in both legal systems are the same in principle and application.

    BENEFITS OF AN INDEPENDENT LAW REFORM COMMISSION*
    by
    DATO' SERI MOHD HISHAMUDIN YUNUS

    Law reform is very important to any legal system and to any country. For the law of a country cannot remain static but must keep abreast with the political, legal, economic and social developments of society. Invariably, there will be areas where the law is unclear, complicated or inaccessible. One of the most effective ways to bring about legal change or to improve the law is by establishing an independent law reform body. Thus, over the last 50 years or so, independent law reform bodies have been established in many countries, mostly in the Commonwealth.

    Law reform bodies

    Various terms, among them Law Reform Agency, Law Reform Committee, Law Commission and Law Reform Institute, have been used when referring to law reform bodies. For present purposes, we shall refer to such a body as a "Law Reform Commission". There are about 60 Law Reform Commissions throughout the world.
