“By virtue of Section 233 (1) of the 1999 Constitution, the Supreme Court shall have jurisdiction to the exclusion of any other court of law in Nigeria to hear and determine appeals from the Court of Appeal. It means that if this application is not granted, the applicants would have no other avenue of seeking redress. This is the only court that can review the decisions of the Court of Appeal.”

 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
