This report is essentially an upgrade of the results of Audu (see [1] and [2]) on some finite permutation groups. It consists of the basic procedure for computing wreath product of groups. We also discussed the conditions under which the wreath products of permutation groups are faithful, transitive and primitive. Further, the centre of the stabilizer and the centre of wreath products was investigated and finally, an illustration was supplied to support our findings.
