ABSTRACT
Death is an inevitable end of everyone. All societies even the crudest, have a form in which individual’s property will be dealt with after they die. Wills are generally unknown and partially alien to indigenous Nigerian culture. In some instances however, some terms of testamentary disposition of property are made to safeguard and avoid the various problems that may likely arise after the death of a family head. Succession, a concept of family set up is centered on a person dying and leaving behind property to be inherited by his successors. Succession may be testate or intestate succession. There exist various rules that govern succession in Nigeria as Nigeria is a multi ethnic society with diverse cultures and customs and each culture has its own rules that govern disposition of family property, i.e. the customary law of a particular society determines the customary intestate succession of a deceased person in that community. In view of the above submissions, this work shall try to examine the testate and intestate rule of succession in Nigeria by given a comparative analysis of the customary rules in Nigeria.
