Discrete investigation by the branch chairman reveals that he was dismissed from the university in his second year. Investigation also reveals that he is an Ex-convict in Sokoto.
He was convicted in Sokoto for impersonating his lecturer to defraud unsuspecting students of the sum of N40,000 under the guise of passing them in their exams.
There are numerous petitions against him before the Samaru division of the Nigeria Police Force for defrauding unsuspecting victims under the guise of rendering legal services.
He was arrested in the evening of 27/05/2019 by the police at Samaru, Zaria. He confessed that he is not a lawyer and has been parading himself as a lawyer but pleaded for mercy and forgiveness, saying that he will not do it again.
The DPO of the division said the suspect will be charged to court for prosecution upon completion of investigation.
Consequently, He was arraigned on four different First Information Reports before Chief Magistrate Court, King’s Road, Zaria. One is upon complaint by NBA Zaria Branch. The other three are upon complaint by three different individuals who he defrauded under the pretense of being a lawyer.
