“On 18th January 2022 at about 1630hrs, the Zamfara State Police Command received a complaint from the Chairman of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Zamfara State Chapter, that on the same date, one Chukwuka Jude ‘M’ a 46-yr-old, was caught inside the Higher Sharia Court T/Wada Gusau, falsely acting as a lawyer to a client.”

He said the accused person had received different amounts as fees from his clients.

According to the prosecution, the fake lawyer confessed to the crime and attempted to bribe the police with N300,000 which the police officer rejected.
