Onuorah (2002) 4 NWLR (Pt. 756) 22 SC states the attitude of an Appellate Court as ragards findings of fact by a lower Courts. The Supreme Court will not interfere with the concurrent findings of both the trial Court and the Court of Appeal except there is established fact of miscarriage of justice or violations of some principles of law or procedure. Similarly, this Court will not interfere with the findings of the trial Court with clearly established misapplication of the law on facts which were misconstrued by the trial Court. There is no miscarriage of justice or any violation at all as the Appellant did not raise any issue to that effect." Per DONGBAN-MENSEM, J.C.A. (Pp. 14-15, Paras. E-B) (...read in context) 4.
