"... it is settled law that evidence elicited from the cross-examination of a defence witness which is in line with the facts pleaded by the plaintiff forms part of the evidence produced by the plaintiff in support of facts pleaded in the Statement of Claim and can be relied upon in proof of the facts in dispute between the parties."

 

Per ONNOGHEN, J.S.C. in CHIEF AYOOLA ADEOSUN v. THE GOVERNOR OF EKITI STATE & ORS 2012) 1 SC (Pt. I) 180
