Asuquo Eyo Okon & Ors V. The State (1982)
LawGlobal-Hub Lead Judgment Report
G. S. SOWEMIMO, J.S.C
The Federal Court of Appeal, Enugu dismissed this appeal because the notice of appeal was wrongly headed. That was the law before the decision of this court in Nofiu Surakatu v. Nigerian Housing Development Society (1981) 4 S.C. 26 which set aside the Addis Ababa case.
The appeal therefore succeeds and it is allowed. The judgment of the Federal Court of Appeal is hereby set aside.
The appeal is remitted to the Federal Court of Appeal, Enugu to be heard on the merits.
