- International Tobacco Company Plc. v. NAFDAC (2007) – The Court of Appeal considered whether the peculiar facts of this case constitute an exception to the judicial authorities that have held that non-service of a statutory pre-action notice renders the suit incompetent. The Court also considered whether in view of the Respondents’ threat of harm to the Appellants’ business, the strict operation and application of S.26(1) of the NAFDAC Decree No. 15 of 1993 to the circumstances of the Appellant’s case constitutes denial of the Appellant’s right of access to courts.
