Eviction process in Nigeria: the need for meaningful engagement
MetadataShow full item record
The important process of meaningful engagement with persons affected by eviction has been greatly under-utilised in Nigeria and this leaves the victims in a dire situation as their yearnings are hardly met. Having regard to the jurisprudence of the South African Constitutional Court on meaningful engagement, a critical evaluation of the case of Badia East eviction in Lagos, Nigeria is considered highlighting the flaws in the engagement process adopted. It is shown that the process of meaningful engagement with affected persons before an eviction occurs has the capacity to mitigate the human rights abuses that could arise from the process.
