Fake Lawyer Impersonates EFCC In Kwara

Date: 2019-10-01


Ilorin zonal office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested a 53-year-old man, Muhammed Bolaji Abdulraheem, for parading himself as a lawyer and allegedly obtaining money under false pretence.

A statement by the head, media and publicity of the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, said that Abdulraheem was accused of using dubious means to defraud his client, Mallam Yusuf Bello, of a sum of N300,000:00

Bello, in his petition to the EFCC, which was assigned to Counter-Terrorism and General Investigations Section of the commission said that Abdulraheem recovered the sum from his debtor but claimed that the money was in the custody of the EFCC.

When confronted with the complainant in the matter, the lawyer confessed that the money was never brought to the EFCC nor did the commission knew anything about it.

The story also took a new dimension on Monday when the suspect, in a dramatic way, destroyed his statement where he admitted that he was called to the Nigeria Bar to have practised legal profession for more than two decades.

This happened when the commission discovered that the suspected fake lawyer never finished from the Nigerian Law School as he allegedly failed prescribed examinations twice.

The statement said that the suspect would soon be charged to court.
