As echoed and re-echoed in the wordings of per Akintan, JSC and sir Katsina-Alu, JSC





in the case of Ben V. State (supra), (2006) 16 NWLR (Pt. 1006) 582
per Akintan, JSC, stated as follows





In cases, where a man was attacked with lethal weapon, and he died on the spot, cause of death can properly be inferred that the wound inflicted caused the death. Put in another form, where the cause of death is obvious, medical evidence ceases to be of any practical or legal necessity in homicide cases. Such a situation arises where death is instantaneous or more so.

sir Katsina-Alu, JSC [as he then was], further observed as follows

The Appellant struck the deceased on the head He fell down unconscious, never regained consciousness until he died a few hours later in hospital. Medical evidence was not necessary to determine the cause of death in the circumstances of this case. It could properly be inferred that the wound inflicted caused the death of the deceased.
