Title:Fundamental human rights and the military regime in Nigeria: what did the courts say?
Author:Aihe, D.O.
Periodical:Journal of African Law
Geographic term:Nigeria
Subject:civil and political rights
Abstract:In Nigeria the individual rights are protected both by the ordinary law and by the Constitution which, by entrenching them during the Civilian régime, makes them inviolable since the emergence of military rule in 1966. However, the combined effect of the military revolution and the Constitution (Suspension and Modification) Decree, 1966, have changed this position. This development is examined in the following parts of the article: Introduction - Suspension of the Republican Constitution - Validity of the Decree suspending parts of the Federal Constitution, 1963 - Rights protected under the Constitution which have been violated - Conclusion. Addendum; notes; résumé en français.
