‘If you fight, cause injury to someone and the person dies within a year, the law presumes you’ve killed the person – Adejobi educates Nigerians


The spokesperson of the Force, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, has warned Nigerians against fighting, saying that the law presumes a person to be a murderer if the person he or she fights and gets injured dies within a year and a day.

‘'If you beat someobody, you and you cause injury to someone, do you know that if that person dies within a year and a day, the law still presumes you are the one that the person, that the injury you have caused this person is still the cause of the except otherwise stated by experts, autopsy or something else. That is why it is dangerous. ‘'

He warned against having fights with people. He said people can easily express their anger by mere talking and not fighting as it can lead into something else.
