CRIMINAL LAW/LAW OF EVIDENCE.
CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE: RETRACTION OF CONFESSIONAL STATEMENT./CORROBORATION/IDENTIFICATION PARADE.
“When confessional statement has been proved to have been made voluntarily and it is positive, unequivocal and amounts to an admission of guilt, it is enough to sustain or base the conviction of an accused. It does not matter whether the maker retracted the statement in the course of the trial. Such a retraction does not necessarily make the confession inadmissible.” Per- Olufunlola Oyelola Adekeye JSC.
