APPEAL – INTERFERENCE WITH CONCURRENT FINDING(S) OF FACT(S) – Attitude of the Supreme Court to interference with concurrent finding(s) of fact(s) of Lower Courts


“I wish to state categorically that this Court would rarely interfere with concurrent findings of the two lower Courts except where such is found to be perverse or unsupported from the evidence before the Court, or where there is a miscarriage of justice or where there is a violation of some principle of law or procedure. In the instant case, I am unable to see what perversity or injustice these findings have occasioned, and therefore cannot be disturbed.” Per JOHN INYANG OKORO, JSC in WOWEM v. STATE (2021-LCER-40502-SC) (Pp 39 – 39; Paras D – F)
