APPEAL – LEAVE OF COURT/LEAVE TO APPEAL – Whether an omnibus ground of appeal is a ground of fact for which leave of Court must be sought


“Ground 6, an omnibus ground, raises issue of pure facts: NWOKIDU v. OKANU (2010) 3 NWLR (PT. 1101) 362; C. C. A, BENUE STATE v. TSEGBA (2017) LPELR – 44027 (CA). It is reckless on the part of the Appellant’s counsel to raise the ground as of right in the further appeal to this Court inspite of the express provisions of Section 233 (2) and (3) of the Constitution. The ground is incompetent.” Per EJEMBI EKO, JSC in ADALMA TANKERS BUNKERING SERVICES LTD & ANOR v. CBN & ORS (2022-LCER-46528-SC) (Pp 84 – 84; Paras B – D)
