JUDGMENT AND ORDER – PERVERSE DECISION – Effect of failure of a party to prove that the concurrent findings of the lower Courts are perverse


“The appellant insists that evidence to sustain the charge for rape punishable under Section 283 of the Penal Code does not abound and that both Courts have erred in their findings to the contrary. I disagree. Appellant has failed to demonstrate that the concurrent findings of the two Courts pertaining his guilt are perverse. Accordingly, the findings must persist. See Ukaegbu & Ors. v. Ugoji & Ors (1991) LPELR – 3338 (SC) and Sunday v. State (2017) LPELR – 42259 (SC).” per MUHAMMAD, J.S.C. in ISMAILA KIWO v. THE STATE (2020-LCER-39167-SC) at p. 30
