A man by name Elijah Ayodeji Ojo allegedly parading himself as a lawyer has been arrested by the police in Ogun State on Tuesday.

He was said to have confessed to the police that he attended Ekiti State University to study law but did not graduate or go to law school.
According to a release by the Ogun Ogun Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, the suspect “has been parading himself as a legal practitioner for quite some time now and has been using that to swindle several people of huge amounts of money“.

“The complainant had reported that Ojo used to parade himself as a lawyer, thereby extorting money from unsuspecting members of the public, despite the fact that he had never been to law school anywhere.

“Upon the petition, the DPO Ajuwon division, SP Andrew Akinseye, and his team of detectives embarked on a painstaking intelligence investigation about the self-acclaimed lawyer.

“In the process of their investigation, they came across a woman who was charged to court for an offence, but was duped by the suspect, who collected about N300,000 from her to perfect her bail condition, but never showed up in the court.

“The suspect was subsequently arrested after much evidence had been gathered against him.

“On interrogation, he confessed that though he gained admission to study law at Ekiti State University but did not finish the course or went to law school,” Oyeyemi confirmed.


  1. We have drop out different stages in primary school, secondary School and even tertiary institution. You actually gained admission to study law, the course of your choice but unfortunately you dropped out, if you know that you can’t cope with law why can’t you change your cause. You have defrauded many people as and now you been caught. You need to vomit you have swallowed, everyday for the thief and one for the owner.

  2. This is an example of many are called but only a few are chosen. Because you wereadmitted does not mean you’ll finish and if you can’t finish why claiming that you’ve finished…Welcome to Nigeria

  3. Mad oo…this wan weak me
