Abstract: Earlier D. G. Higman classified the finite groups of order n, such that n is divisible by 3 to the first power, with the assumption that the centralizer $ {C_G}(X)$ of X, where X is a subgroup of order 3, is a cyclic trivial intersection set of even order 3s. In this paper the theorem is generalized to include all prime numbers greater than 3. With an additional assumption: $ \vert{N_G}(X):{C_G}(X)\vert = 2$, we have proved that one of the following holds for these groups, hereafter designated as G:

(A) G is isomorphic to $ {L_2}(q)$, where $ q = 2ps \pm 1$;

(B) there exists a normal subgroup $ {G_0}$ of odd index in G, and a normal subgroup N of $ {G_0}$ of index 2 such that $ G = N\langle \sigma \rangle $ where $ {C_G}(X) = X \times \langle \sigma \rangle $.
