He was arrested on Thursday while appearing as a counsel before Chief Magistrate B.I.Ilo at the Chief Magistrate Court, Agbara.
The suspect is a resident of Oko Afor area of Badagry Lagos State.
His presentation in court aroused the suspicion of chief magistrate, who invited police to arrest him for proper interrogation, in order to authenticate his claim of being a lawyer.
