“It is a general rule that this Court does not make it a habit of disturbing the concurrent findings of two lower Courts, unless shown to be perverse, unsupported by admissible evidence or has occasioned a miscarriage of justice, Kale v Coker 12 SC 252; Mbang v The State (2013) 7 NWLR (pt. 1352) 48; Woluchem v Gudi (1981) 5 SC 291, 326; Ike v Ugboaja (1993) 6 NWLR (pt. 301) 569.
