Uncategorised

“…The next question is upon which would this Court disturb those findings of the Court below as the trial did. The answer is that there is nothing on which this Court can hang an interference as there is no perversity in the findings nor a miscarriage of justice or a misapplication of the law, procedural or substantive. See Fatunbi v Olanloye (2004) 6-7 SC 68; Umeanadu v A.G. Anambra State (2008) 9 NWLR (Pt. 1091) 175 (SC); Mobil Producing (Nig.)
