LAW, PHOTOGRAPHY AND INVASION OF PRIVACY: SAFEGUARDING THE NIGERIAN JOURNALIST


Abstract:

This work is titled, “Law, photography and invasion of privacy: Safeguarding the Nigerian journalist”. Using a qualitative research approach, the work explores the concepts of law, photography as well as the subsisting Nigerian law as it relates to invasion of privacy. The work finds that though journalism, both as a profession and vocation, revels in muck-racking and investigation and bringing the outcome to the ever inquisitive doorsteps of the people, the express provision of the law particularly on invasion of privacy readily guide the journalist from over-zealous and unfettered acts of burrowing into the personal affairs/homes of individuals in the quest for information. The work further recommends constant orientation and education of the “men of pen” on the need to sail through the coastal waters of journalism unhurt by arming themselves always with practical knowledge of the law, particularly, law on photography and invasion of privacy.
