Abstract: The methanol and petroleum ether extracts of the leaf and stem bark of Nauclea latifolia, Bridelia atroviridis and Zanthoxylum gilletii showed antimicrobial activity against the test organisms. The methanol extracts of the plants exhibited higher activity than the pet ether extract against the test organisms. The activity of the extracts may support some of the folkloric uses of these plants as agents for the management of sores, gonorrhoea, dysentery, wounds and toothache. The phytochemical screening of the extracts showed the presence of alkaloids, tannins, saponins and sterols.
