Abuse of court process means that the process of the court has not been used bonafide and it may occur when a party improperly uses a judicial process to the harassment, irritation and annoyance of his opponent and to interfere with the administration of justice. The institution of multiplicity of actions by the parties, in the instant case, constitutes an abuse of the court process. There must be an end to litigation. Although, every person as citizen has a right of access to the court for redress, that right should be exercised in good faith. [Okafor v.
