Alleged Fake Lawyer Grabbed In Court – PHOTO

A 39-year-old man, Mr Kyei Baffour, who posed as a lawyer, has been arrested and charged with deceiving a public officer.

The suspect was nabbed while representing his client in a murder case at the Nyinahin District Court in the Ashanti Region on the orders of magistrate Vera Victoria Akonu.

The magistrate intimated that her checks at the Ghana Bar Association (GBA) and General Legal Council (GLC) revealed that the suspect was not called to the Bar.

The suspect, who had numerous cases before her court, admitted to not being a lawyer even though he has some background knowledge in law after pursuing a professional legal course in California, USA.

He asserted that he passed the law entrance examination in Ghana but discontinued the programme due to personal reasons.

The suspect has been detained for further investigations.

The police says he will be put before the Circuit Court at Nkawie soon.
