Tarfa’s submission was contrary to a public statement made by President Muhammadu Buhari wherein he claimed that the military authority was in possession of his certificate.

But Tarfa who affirmed that he was recruited into the Nigerian Army on April 16, 1962 with Buhari said this under cross-examination by Buhari’s lead counsel, Wole Olanipekun.
