The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested a fake lawyer, Adekola Adekeye, over alleged forgery of documents to perpetrate fr#ud.

Spokesperson for the Commission, Mr Wilson Uwujaren, in a statement in Abuja on Thursday, January 13, said that Adekeye was arrested when he came to the commission’s office in Lagos to secure bail of a suspected fr#udster.

According to him, “The suspect on January 11, 2022 came posing as a lawyer to secure the bail of a suspected fr#udster who is in the commission’s custody in Lagos.

However, nemesis caught up with Adekeye, when investigators dug in further to verify the documents he tendered to secure the bail of the suspected fr#udster.

A search at his residence further unearthed several forged documents dating back to 2005, including forged Lagos State University and Kwara State College of Education documents.

He also claimed to be the owner of “A.A. Emmanuel & Co. Chambers”, which he had been using to perpetrate fr#uds until his arrest. He will soon be arraigned in court.”
