Fake Lawyer bags 3yrs jailterm in OgunA fake lawyer, Oluwagbenga Adedeji, has been sentenced to three years’ imprisonment by a Chief Magistrate Court sitting in Itori, Ewekoro Local Government Area of Ogun State.

ROYAL NEWS gathered that the Convict was arrested on the court premises last week Wednesday when he appeared as a counsel for a client.

The convict was arraigned before Chief Magistrate B. A. Somorin on Thursday on one count of unlawful and illegal appearance as a lawyer.

The convict had first pleaded not guilty but later changed his plea to guilty when he was confronted with the evidence.

Somorin sentenced him to three years imprisonment with hard labour without an option of fine.

The convict was arrested during a court session as his conduct was not in tandem with that of someone called to the bar, which was noticed by the magistrate himself.

He was subsequently detained at the Ewekoro Police Station, from where he was transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for prosecution.
