Can a “Will” be rewritten after Death of its Owner? 

by Onyekachi Umah,Esq.
(Tip 218)

An owner (testator) of a Will has the right to share his property in the manner he pleases. He can also change his Will as many times as he pleases before his death. Once the maker is dead, no person can change his Will. His Will must be respected by all.

My authority is Asika V. Atuanya (2013) 14 NWLR PART 1375.
