“The importance of prayer in a statement of claim, a version of petition in this specie of proceeding, which is a critical process in adjectival law, cannot be underscored. Every statement of claim/petition terminates with a prayer. In the absence of the prayer portion of it, a statement of claim/petition is deemed as bare assertions and liable to be struck out, see Stowe v. Benstowe (2012) 9 NWLR (Pt. 1306) 450.”
