A fake lawyer, Adedeji Ebenezer Oluwagbenga, has been sentenced to three years imprisonment with hard labor and without the option of fine in Ogun state.

Disclosing this to newsmen, the spokesperson of the state police command, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said Adedeji, who was arrested on August 5 at Itori Chief Magistrate Court where he appeared for a client, was convicted on Wednesday, August 12.

According to Oyeyemi, the convict was arraigned before Chief Magistrate B.A Somorin on one count charge of unlawful and illegal appearance as a lawyer. He said the suspect initially pleaded not guilty to the charge, but later changed his plea to guilty when he was confronted with evidence.

“The convict was arrested during a court session at Itori Chief Magistrate Court when his conduct did not in any way in tandem with the practice of somebody who has been called to the bar, which was also 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 diligent prosecution. The fake lawyer, was however, arraigned and sentenced to prison for being impostor” the PPRO stated


  1. It serves him better and it will serve as a lesson to other people who wants to behave in such manner but if those who bankrupt our country wealth could be given such treatment, things would have been changed.

  2. If our corrupt politicians could be given such treatment things would have been better by now but they use to evade justice as baba obasanjo said and it’s not their faults if not the fault of those corrupt judges that are handling their cases. Nevertheless, it good for him and it will also seves as deterrent to others who have such in mind.

  3. This is funny..o
    He would have gone to read law if he knows he has the passion for that profession
    Coming out to claim he is a lawyer why he is not is unfair nah
    I don’t even know the reason why some people behave like this
    Now he has put himself into problem and is now in the hand of the law
    Let him serve his jail term and cool off there in prison if it will serve as a detriment to others who are planning to behave in this same manner he behaved
    People should learn to do the right things

  4. As you quickly judge this fake lawyer, at least you should judge those corrupt leaders/politicians who embezzled our money without delay.

  5. When you built a house with lies it will surely collapse with dew. How I wish our should facilitate the judgement of those corrupt politicians without delay. Good for him Sha.
