Abstract: Introduction: Stroke or cerebrovascular Accident according to WHO is focal or global neurological deficit of vascular origin lasting more than twenty-four hours or resulting in death before twenty-four hours. Stroke is a health condition with global impact, causing significant morbidity and mortality worldwide. Many economies of the world commit to combating this problem. Worldwide and especially in sub Saharan.Africa, the victims are mainly in the productive age ranges, leading to huge economic loss.Stroke is currently the second leading cause of death worldwide after Ischaemic heart disease. Most strokes are preceded by modifiable risk factors. Controlling these risk factors would reduce the occurrence, morbidity and mortality of stroke. Objectives: To evaluate the social and clinical demographics of stroke cases. Method: This was a study on one hundred and twenty acute stroke (within 24 hours) cases carried out in UBTH. Data was analyzed using SPSS 21 software. Results: The most common feature was facial palsy, impaired speech and headache in 56.7%, 53.3% and 26.7% of cases respectively. Hypertension was the most common risk factor for stroke in this study (76.7%) followed by Diabetes mellitus and obesity in 23.3% and 10.0% respectively. Conclusion: Neural abnormalities are the most common features of stroke and hypertension is the most common risk factor. Hypertension is modifiable. The global effort to control and reduce the incidence of hypertension should be continued
