*WHAT IS THE ALLOWED PRESUMABLE ORDER OF DEATH OF PERSONS IN NIGERIA*. DAILY LAW TIPS (Tip 309) By Onyekachi Umah, Esq., LLM. ACIArb(UK).
No one knows when he/she will die but we all must die some day! Well, for the sake of sharing property and determining ownership of property, where two (2) or more persons died in circumstances that have made it impossible to determine who died before the other, they would be presumed to have died according to their order of seniority, with the eldest dying first. The first to come to life is presumed to be first to die.
My authorities are sections 164 (2) and 259 of the Evidence Act, 2011.
