“Again where an appellate court is confronted with an incompetent notice of appeal or to put it in another way, with incompetent appeal it becomes bereft of jurisdiction to hear and determine such appeal and as a corollary, it must strike the appeal out for want of competence or want of jurisdiction to hear and determine it. See Odofin V Agu (1992) 3 NWLR (pt 229) 350; NNB v Denclag (2004) FWLR (228) 606.” 

PER A.SANUSI, J.S.C IN THE CASE OF FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA V ADEYANJU BODUNDE
