Fake Lawyer in Dock[/caption] Luck, however, ran out on Olamide-the convict- on October 20, 2016 when he appeared as a “lawyer” before a Magistrate in whose name he had clandestinely obtained money from litigants.

Adikwaone (Esq.) wishes to reiterate its determination to purge the legal profession of charlatans and impostors.]]>
