CONSTITUTIONAL LAW IN NIGERIA
Mowoe, Kehinde

Since the inception of civilian rule in 1999, the provisions of the Nigerian constitution have been tested in various aspects before the courts. This book is a completely revised merger of both volumes 1 and 2 of the previous published 'Constitutional Law in Nigeria'. It deals with the various principles of constitutional law and fundamental human rights as contained in the 1999 constitution, though frequent references are made to previous Nigerian constitutions so as to highlight the changes. References are made to what obtains in foreign jurisdictions on a comparative basis, especially where there has been little or no pronouncement of the courts on the matter, or where the position is different from what obtains in Nigeria. 156pp, SENEGAL.

CONSTITUTIONAL LAW IN NIGERIA VOLUME 1CONSTITUTIONAL LAW IN NIGERIA VOLUME 1

It analyses the procedure for the making of the 1999 Constitution, and the present position. It advocates for the future, more active or total participation of Nigerians in the constitution making process. The study discusses the develop-ment of constitutional law vis-a-vis federalism, the legislature, the executive, the judiciary, local governments and citizenship. Index, 216pp, NIGERIA. MALTHOUSE.

CORPORATE CRIMINAL LIABILITY IN NIGERIA
Ali, Linus Hussein

Attempts answers to the following liability questions in the Nigerian context: what rationale, if any, exists to justify the imposition of criminal liability on corporations? Which category of officers or persons and in what circumstances should they have acted for the company in order to ground criminal liability? Which crimes do corporations commit? What appropriate sanctions can be imposed upon conviction and to what extent can these sanctions deter corporate criminality? The book establishes concrete conceptual and legal bases for corporate criminal liability in Nigeria and, given the notorious inability of regulatory agencies in Africa to rein in the excesses of commercial and industrial organisations, it concludes with an examination of the possibility of developing an effective corporate criminal liability administration in Nigeria. 364pp, NIGERIA.

PERSPECTIVES ON VIGILANTISM IN NIGERIAPERSPECTIVES ON VIGILANTISM IN NIGERIA
Pratten, David (Ed.)

Special issue of the journal AFRICA, Volume 78, Number 1 (2008), this collection focuses on the rise of vigilantism and the privatization of armed security in Nigeria from a number of fresh perspectives that move beyond the 'collapsed state' thesis to grasp the more productive and dynamic dimensions of sociality and security both today and during the colonial period. Vigilantism has become an endemic feature of the Nigerian social and political landscape, especially so since the return to democratic rule in 1999. Vigilantes have assumed a status synonymous with the fractured and violence-ridden image of Africa's most populous nation. Beyond fighting crime, vigilante groups such as the O'odua People's Congress, the Bakassi Boys and the shari'a implementation committees represent divergent aspirations for Nigeria's future, and spearhead contemporary political contests over the country's most intractable issues - the politics of democracy, ethnicity and religion. 152pp, UK.

PROBLEMS AND CHALLENGES FOR LAWYERS IN AFRICA: Lessons from NigeriaPROBLEMS AND CHALLENGES FOR LAWYERS IN AFRICA: Lessons from Nigeria
Oko, Okechukwu

Examines the role and place of lawyers in Africa in this era of hope and optimism. It provides an illuminating perspective on how lawyers operate in a society anxious to embrace democracy, but still crippled by past attitudes, weak and ineffectual institutions, corruption, and the recru-descence of primordial ethnic sentiments. Though the focus is on Nigeria, the book refers to other countries to highlight, by contrast or comparison, the central issues faced by lawyers all over the African continent. Argues that these findings are relevant to other African countries because the social pathologies that disfigure Nigeria are prevalent in most, if not all, African nations. 496pp, USA.

THE ROLE OF THE OMBUDSMAN IN NIGERIA: Redress of GrievancesTHE ROLE OF THE OMBUDSMAN IN NIGERIA: Redress of Grievances
Odunsi, Bennett A.

Reviews the Nigerian legal tradition before and after the advent of the British colonial admini-stration. After gaining independence from British colonial rule, the government did not deviate from the established practice of the colonial administration in relation to the protection of the rights of the citizens. The only available channel for citizens to challenge arbitrary and capricious action of administrative officials is the ordinary courts of law. Justice in administrative areas under this arrangement often seems slow and wanting. Therefore, the military government instituted a commission of enquiry to analyze and find ways to improve the situation which recommended the establishment of the institution of the Ombudsman. In 1975, the Murtala military administration established the Public Complaints Commission as a supplement to the court system to correct flagrant disregard of basic standards of human rights by administrative officials. 192pp, USA.

TRANSITIONAL JUSTICE, JUDICIAL ACCOUNTABILITY AND THE RULE OF LAWTRANSITIONAL JUSTICE, JUDICIAL ACCOUNTABILITY AND THE RULE OF LAW
Yusuf, Hakeem O.

Argues that the purview of transitional justice mechanisms should, as a matter of policy, be extended to scrutiny of the judicial role in the past. Through a critical comparative approach that cuts through the transitioning experiences of post-authoritarian and post-conflict polities in Latin America, Asia, Europe and Africa, the book focuses specifically on Nigeria. It demonstrates that public accountability of the judiciary through the mechanism of a truth-seeking process is a necessary component in securing comprehensive accountability for the judicial role in the past. 216pp, UK.
