Men of the Ogun State Police Command have arrested a 50-year-old man for unlawfully parading himself as a legal practitioner during court sitting.
The suspect, who is a resident of Oko Afo area of Badagry, Lagos State, was arrested while appearing as a counsel before Chief magistrate B.I Ilo, at the chief magistrate court, Agbara.
His 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 DDO, Agbara Division, SP Dahiru Saleh, and he confessed that though he read law in the university, he has not been called to the Bar since he has not passed the law school examination.
Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, CP Edward Awolowo Ajogun, has ordered that the suspect be charged to court as soon as possible.
