“Courts That Can Hear Cases of Fundamental Human Rights In Nigeria”.
Magistrate Courts, Customary Courts, Area Courts, Sharia Courts, Court Martial, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court cannot hear and determine any new case of fundamental human rights in Nigeria. Although, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court can hear appeals on such matters. It is only the State High Courts, Federal High Court and National Industrial Court that can hear and determine cases of fundamental human rights as courts of first instance.
See sections 46 & 245(C) of the Constitution of Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999.
