Fake lawyer impersonates EFCC, tears statement

The Ilorin Zonal Office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested a 53-year-old man, Muhammed Bolaji Abdulraheem for allegedly parading himself as a lawyer and obtaining money under false pretence.
Abdulraheem was accused of using dubious means to defraud his client, Mallam  Yusuf Bello, of N300,000.
Bello in his petition to the EFCC, which was assigned to Counter Terrorism and General Investigations Section of the Commission, alleged that Abdulraheem recovered the said amount from his debtor and claimed that the money was in the custody of the EFCC.
When confronted with the complainant in the matter, the ‘lawyer’, however, opened up and confessed that the money was never brought to the EFCC and neither did the Commission know anything about it.
The story took a new dimension on Monday when the suspect, in dramatic fashion, destroyed his statement where he admitted that he  was called to the Nigeria Bar and had been practicing the legal profession for more than two decades
