Fake Lawyer Apprehended In Oyo State … Says He Has Been Practicing In Lagos State …

A fake lawyer, Owolabi Kayode, who said he has been practicing the profession in Lagos state even while working at the University of Lagos (UNILAG), has been apprehended by a group of lawyers at the Iyaganku area of Oyo state on Friday.


The lawyers who have been suspecting the illegal activities of fake lawyer Kayode, said, although Kayode is a law graduate, but he has not been called to bar; and so he cannot claim to be a lawyer.


To further buttress their claims, the group of lawyers said, Owolabi Kayode, has no Supreme Court number that qualifies him to be a practicing lawyer.


On further interrogation, the fake lawyer, who seemed to always be looking for a way of escape, changed his story when he said he has just resigned as a staff of UNILAG; and to make the matter worse, Kayode claimed to have a Ph.D in law, and therefore, going about with a Doctor (Dr.) tag to his name.


Owolabi Kayode, apart from parading himself as a Lagos based lawyer, also tours the Oyo state environs (Igboora, Eruwa axis) as a professional lawyer.


He was however nabbed in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital, by a group of smart professional lawyers on Friday, who handed him over to the police.
