This book is one in the series under the Public Enlightenment Campaign Series (PECS) established to educate the public on their basic civil rights. There are everyday infringements of our civil rights by neighbors, associates and strangers which many of us take for granted, basically out of ignorance. But some of us are aware of our rights but don’t know how to enforce them. Let me inform you that you have civil rights which you can enforce yourself because it is not in all cases that the police must be involved. Of course, I know many of us hate having anything to do with the police. This book will therefore enlighten you on your rights in cases of trespass to your person or your property, negligence, nuisance, breach of agreement, defamation of character and lots more. After reading this book, you can be sure you will become more enlightened and knowledgeable on your rights. IT IS RECOMMENDED FOR ALL!

(Please note that the print edition of this book is out of stock presently. Only the soft copy/eBook version is available for now. When you pay, the soft copy/eBook will be sent to your email to download and read at your convenience).
