Dickson Aighobahi V. The State (1982) LLJR-SC

Dickson Aighobahi V. The State (1982)

LawGlobal-Hub Lead Judgment Report


I think the learned counsel, Chief Jibowu, appearing for the appellant is correct in intimating to the court that there is nothing that can possibly be urged in favour of the appellant. The appeal is therefore dismissed as without substance.

G. S. SOWEMIMO, J.S.C.: I agree with the judgment just delivered by my brother, Sir Udo Udoma, J.S.C. The action of the appellant, to say the least, is extremely dastardly and callous in killing his mother. The appeal ought to be dismissed and is hereby dismissed.

A. NNAMANI, J.S.C.: Learned counsel for the appellant and respondent have rightly in my view submitted that there is nothing in law that can be urged in favour of the appellant. This was indeed a most brutal and callous murder of appellant’s mother by him. I have carefully studied the records of proceedings and I can see no where to fault the judgments of the trial Judge and the Federal Court of Appeal. The learned trial Judge rightly rejected the defences of insanity and provocation raised by the appellant. I agree with the learned presiding justice that the appeal lacks substance. The appeal is hereby dismissed.
