Whereas he described the first set of documents as “very strange”, Uzoukwu said he would subsequently adduce reasons why the Buhari’s certificate which he said was never pleaded nor listed by the 2nd Respondent, lacked probative value. Meanwhile, Buhari has called his first witness, a retired Major General, Paul Tarfa, who said they were listed in the Nigerian Army the same time on April 16, 1962, as his first witness.
