CHIEF T. OKEOWO AND A.G. OF OGUN STATE

Subject matter Land Law- Acquisition of land-

The services of notice of acquisition of land according to Section 9(1)© of the Public Lands Acquisition Law, Cap.105 vol.15. Laws of Western Nigeria 1959. Concurrent findings of facts. The law is that “the evaluation of evidence and the ascription of probative value to such evidence are the primary functions of a court of trial which saw, heard and duly assessed the witnesses. Where, as in the present case, a court of trial unquestionably evaluates the evidence and justifiably raises the facts, what the Court of Appeal ought to do is to find out whether there is evidence on record on which the trial court could have acted. Once there is sufficient evidence on record from which the trial court arrived at its findings of facts, the appellate court cannot interfere.” Per W.S.N Onnoghen JSC
