A suspected fake lawyer, Adebowale Adeola Babatunde has been arrested while presenting himself as counsel before  a  Magistrate Court in Osogbo, Osun State.
The suspect, according to findings, has been practising for over 10 years. He was charged by Police in a case file number: MOS/152C/2021.
But a statement by the Publicity Secretary of Nigeria Bar Association, Osogbo branch, Barr Dawood Ajetunmobi, disclosed that the Ministry of Justice has taken over the case from police.
It was gathered that Babatunde, on March 10, 2021 appeared before Magistrate A. A Adeyeba to move a motion.

The way and manner in which he conducted himself in the court raised suspicion as one of the lawyers at the bar, O.U Yussuf, called the attention of the Magistrate to the inappropriate way Babatunde addressed the court. Yussuf therefore moved an oral application to make enquiry about status of Babatunde as a lawyer.
The magistrate gave a prompt order for the arrest of the defendant.
Meanwhile, the trial of the defendant that was supposed to come up on Wednesday, 8, September 2021 before Osogbo Chief Magistrate A.K Ajala was stalled due to the absence of the fake lawyer.
In his ruling, Magistrate Ajala refused the prosecutor’s prayer and adjourned the matter to September 24, 2021 for fresh arraignment since the matter is coming up before him for the first time.
