EVIDENCE - UNCHALLENGED/UNCONTROVERTED EVIDENCE: Whether where the evidence adduced before a trial Court is unchallenged, the Court still has a duty to evaluate same.

"It can be safely said that from what has been stated so far, the fact that plaintiff's evidence is unchallenged, will not automatically result in his success. The Court still has a bounden and sacred duty to evaluate his evidence and satisfy itself that the evidence is credible and sufficient to sustain the claim. See Yakubu v Ministry Works and Transport, Adamawa State (2006) 10 NWLR (Pt.989) 513, 547."
