The Nigerian Police Force has declared a Port Harcourt based lawyer, Wodo Godknows Aliegbulam wanted for allegedly impersonating a Bar aspirant during the Bar Final Resit Examinations held last May.
Recall that TheNigeriaLawyer had earlier reported that the Council of Legal Education had dismissed its Principal Data Processing Officer and two others for alleged allegedly facilitating the exchange of a student’s passport belonging to Wobo Prince Adele-Owhor to enable the embattled lawyer to sit for the examination for the Bar aspirant.
A public notice from the Ministry of Justice in one of the national dailies and sighted by TheNigeriaLawyer read:
“This is to notify the public that the person whose picture is displayed above, Barr. Wodo Godknows Aliegbulam, a Port-Harcourt based Legal Practitioner is declared wanted by the Nigeria Police Force for the offence of Joint Act and cheating by personation (sic) committed during the Bar Part II Resit Examinations held from 7th – 13th May, 2022.”
Wodo was said to have absconded from court on June 21, 2022, leading to the issuance of a bench warrant for his arrest by an FCT Magistrates Court.
