The police in Ogun State have arrested a man for allegedly parading himself as a lawyer without necessary qualification.

The command spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said Omoniyi Vacoster was arrested on February 1, for parading himself as a lawyer and holding legal brief for unsuspecting members of the public.

Oyeyemi said “the suspect was arrested following a complaint by one Omomehin Oluwatoyin a female, of Ogun State chapter of the Nigeria Bar Association, who reported that the said Omoniyi Vacoster has been coming to various courts in Ogun State to defend cases, but the association’s investigation about him indicated that he has never at any time been called to Bar.

“On interrogation, the suspect confessed that though he read Law in the university, he has never been called to bar having failed to go through the law school hence he is not qualified to practice as a lawyer.”

Oyeyemi said the commissioner of police, CP Ahmed Iliyasu, has ordered that the case be transferred to State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for further investigation and prosecution of the suspect.
