The elements essential to invoke the doctrine of equitable estoppel are:

(1) an admission, statement or act inconsistent with the claim afterwards asserted,
(2) action by the other party on the faith of such admission, statement or act, and
(3) injury to such other party resulting from allowing the first party to contradict or repudiate such admission, statement or act.
