The undercover operatives of Lagos State Police Command attached to Ojo Police Station, on 25/05/2018, arrested one Mr. Uche Julian Nwajiakwu for impersonating as a lawyer.
This made it the second time a fake lawyer is being arrested at Ojo Magistrate Court. The first was the arrest of one Chris Elisha who was arrested on 6th of February, 2018, after being in illegal practise for fifteen years. .
Meanwhile, Uche Julian Nwajiakwu, the latest man to be arrested for illegal law practice, had been on the game since 2015.
According to the suspect, he fell in love with law practice when a friend of his commissioned him to act as a lawyer in order to serve his tenant a quit notice. He was handsomely rewarded after the deed and since then, there was no looking back.
However, luck ran out on him recently, while he was arguing on a bail application for his client when intelligent lawyers in the court suspected him. The lawyers said his quackery was too obvious to be ignored.
The police investigation into the case thus far, revealed that the suspect did not study law in any of the Nigerian universities nor anywhere else in the world. He was charged to Ojo Magistrate Court on the 30/05/2018, for the offence of impersonation.
