The effect of acetone, chloroform, hexane and methanol extracts of Morinda tinctoria leaves was investigated by various techniques for in vitro antibacterial activities against seven bacteria. Those bacteria include gram +ve and gram -ve. The chloroform and methanol extracts of Ficus racemosa posses measurable in vitro antimicrobial properties against all the bacterial strains tested, while the Hexane extracts of the plant parts clearly did not produce any measurable antimicrobial activity.
