“Where there is no established precedent in this jurisdiction, the court may examine the decisions of courts in other similar jurisdictions for guidance. It is conceded that they are of persuasive authority only. 

 

PER K.M.O. KEKERE-EKUN, J.S.C IN THE CASE OF BRIGADIER GENERAL JAMES OMEBIJE ABDULLAHI V NIGERIAN ARMY & ORS; LER(2018)SC. 433/2010
