Author(s): Felix Daniel Nzarga and Josephine Nkeonye Egemonu

Abstract: The crux of this paper intensively examines the principles behind the concept of a Surety in the Nigerian legal system. The paper systemically traced and analyzed the historical evolution of surety from what was found in the oldest Hambali Code down to what we presently have in Nigeria, It also looked at the qualifications for becoming a surety as well as the several rights and corresponding responsibilities of a surety. The paper ultimately appraised several legislations and judicial pronouncements on surety and gave some recommendations on how our judicial system can best treat a surety with a view to enhancing our administration of criminal justice in Nigeria.
