Principles of Garnishee Proceed in Nigeria
The special procedure known as ‘’garnishee proceeding’’ is a child of necessity. It is more of an interventionist procedure invented by law to compel the unwilling judgment debtor to pay up and fulfill his financial obligation to the judgment creditor. Indeed, if all debtors were to honor their financial obligations and pay their debts as and when due, this special procedure would not have existed in the first place or would have become moribund and less attractive by now. The reality however is that the reverse is the case today.
