The largely historical legal study focuses on four objectives to wit: to examine the laws (decrees and edicts) which defined the limits of press freedom during military rule in Nigeria- to draw together in one document the pertinent Nigerian case law in the area of press freedom during military rule- to identify and analyze the institutional, legal and non-legal measures and mechanisms utilized by Nigerian military regimes in controlling the press- and to identify and analyze the socio-political factors that influenced or affected press freedom during military rule in Nigeria.
