Title:'Improper' admission of inadmissible evidence: the effect of failure to object
Author:Kasunmu, A.B.ISNI
Periodical:The Nigerian Law Journal
Geographic term:Nigeria
Abstract:The distinction between a wrongful and an improper admission of evidence is important only from the point of view of whether the person aggrieved by such admission can argue the question of admissibility on appeal. While in all cases of wrongful admission, the issue of admissibility can be raised again on appeal, in the case of an improper admission the aggrieved person might in certain circumstances be precluded from raising the question of admissibility on appeal. This article examines what factors should guide an appellate court in deciding whether or not to allow a person to complain about the inadmissibility of evidence at an appellate stage when no objection was raised at the trial level.
