Bala v. Dikko  4 NWLR (Pt. 1343) 52 at 60 para G-H, per Mohammed, JSC:
“…It [is] unethical and quite contrary to the Rules of Professional Conduct in the Legal Profession for… counsel to have filed the motion and also at the same time pose as a vital witness in the affidavit in support of the case of his client…”
The proper thing to do is to use the litigant (or duly authorised representative) as deponent or other staff in counsel’s office such as a litigation officer seized with the facts of the case.
