Fake Lawyer: Badagry Resident Parading Himself As Lawyer Busted By Police

A 50-year-old resident of Badagry has been arrested by the police for parading himself as a legal practitioner in Ogun State.

According to Channels report, the suspect identified as Azeez Agboola had appeared as a counsel before Chief Magistrate B.I. Ilo at the Chief Magistrate Court in the Agbara of Ogun State.

Police Spokesperson for Ogun State, Abimbola Oyeyemi, in a statement said the suspect’s presentation in court aroused the suspicion of the chief magistrate who invited the police to arrest him for proper interrogation, in order to authenticate his claim of being a lawyer.

“Upon his arrest, the suspect was personally interrogated by the Divisional Police Officer (Agbara Division), Superintendent of Police Dahiru Saleh, and he confessed that though he read law in the university, he has not been called to bar since he has not passed the law school examination,” the statement said.

Reacting to the incident, the Commissioner of Police in Ogun, Edward Ajogun, ordered that the suspect be charged to court as soon as possible.
