During the resumed hearing on Wednesday, two witnesses from the Nigerian Army were presented before the court by their counsel. After making their submissions, they were cross-examined by the defence counsel, Femi Falana.

Fourteen more witnesses will be presented before the court during the continuation of trial today, November 19.
