LawGlobal-Hub Lead Judgment Report


Speaking for myself, this appeal is a complete waste of time. The conviction of the appellant of the offences charged are amply supported by the evidence which the trial Judge accepted. I am not, therefore, surprised that his appeal to the Federal Court of Appeal was dismissed.

No submission of any substance was made before us at the hearing of the further appeal to this court. The appeal is, in my view, completely devoid of any merit; the complaint of absence of a fair hearing in the High Court being utterly baseless, the appeal is accordingly dismissed in its entirety.

The conviction and sentences passed on the appellant in the High Court of Imo State sitting at Owerri are therefore affirmed.
