Excerpts from the foreword written by the Chief Judge, Edo State – Hon. E.F. Ikponmwen
…This book can easily be dubbed a mobile library as it runs through every conceivable legal question or issue… It does not overwhelm the reader but rather answers to the broad spectrum of legal questions… With this book in hand, bench rulings would come faster, smart lawyers would be brighter in practice and students would learn faster too. The language applied is simple and expository. I must emphasize that this compendium provides a detailed exposition and doctrinal analysis of all questions of law… Mr. Basil Momodu, the author, has with the production of this book stamped his footprints firmly in the legal sand for all times… Over these years I have known the author to be a gentleman per excellence who is very self-effacing, gracious in his manners and hardworking. This new product of his, “Encyclopedia of Nigerian Case Law Principles and Authorities” therefore, like others he had authored has impressed me by its clarity and simplicity…Words fail me to describe the feeling of rare honour and privilege I have to write the first word introducing this book to the public. It gives me a humbling feeling which at the same time gives me great pride.
– Hon. Justice E.F. Ikponmwen
