Kumasi: Fake Lawyer Nabbed After Raising Suspicion In Court



A 39-year-old man, Kyei Baffour who posed as a lawyer has been arrested and charged for 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 the Magistrate, Her Worship Vera Victoria Akonu.

Upon the arrest on Wednesday, the Magistrate intimated that her checks at the Ghana Bar Association (GBA) and General Legal Counsel (GLC) revealed that the suspect was not called to the Bar.

Hitherto, the suspect who has numerous cases before her Court admitted not being a lawyer even though he has some background knowledge in law after pursuing a legal Professional course in California, USA.

He asserted that he passed the Law Entrance Examination in Ghana but he discontinued the Law Programme due to personal reasons.

The suspect has been detained for further investigations. 

The Police say he will be put before the Circuit Court at Nkawie soon.
