The police in Ogun State have arrested a 47-year-old ex-convict for parading himself as a legal practitioner.

It was learnt that suspect, Balogun Ayodele, was caught while appearing as a defence counsel before a Magistrate Court at Ilaro, Yewa South Local Government Area of the state.

The suspect’s presentation in court aroused the suspicion of the magistrate who put his legal expertise to a test. But upon his failure, the magistrate invited police officers from Ilaro Area Command who stepped in.

A statement by the Command’s Spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi quoted Ayodele to have confessed that he was not a lawyer upon his arrest and interrogation.

“On interrogation,  he confessed that he is never a lawyer and that he has been going to court under pretense of being a legal practitioner for quite some time now.

“While the investigation was going on,  a prison warden came to identify him as an ex-convict who just finished  serving a six months jail term on a similar offence”, Oyeyemi said.

He added that the Commissioner of Police, Bashir Makama had ordered that the suspect be arraigned before a court of competent jurisdiction as soon as the investigation is concluded.
