Fake Lawyer Nabbed In Court
Mr. Uche Julian Nwajiakwu got in a situation of acting like a lawyer, which he did quite well.
He got proceeds from his brave performance, and now, there is no looking back, or so he thought.
Unfortunately for him, the undercover operatives of Lagos State Police Command attached to Ojo Police Station, on May 25, 2018, arrested him 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 on 6th of February 2018, after being in illegal practise for 15 years. Meanwhile, Uche Julian Nwajiakwu, the latest man to be arrested for illegal law practice had been in 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 Julian Nwajiakwu, while he was arguing on a bail application for his client, when intelligent lawyers in the court suspected he was a fraud. 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.
In view of this incident, the Lagos state Commissioner of Police, Edgar Imohimi, reiterated his warning to professional bodies to properly scrutinise people professing to be members of their body.
According to the CP, this is one incident too many and must be checked.
He noted that the Command had in the recent months, arrested fake medical doctors and other spurious health workers as well as fake journalists.
