However, Nwajiakwu met his waterloo while he was negotiating a bail application for his client as intelligent lawyers in the court began to suspect him.
According to them, the suspect's quackery was too obvious to be missed.
The police investigation into the case has revealed that the suspect did not study law in any of the Nigerian universities or anywhere else in the world.
Nwajiakwu has been charged to Ojo Magistrate Court on May 30, 2018, for impersonation.

Brazen fake lawyer arrested in court while representing client

The long arm of the law has caught up with a 34-year-old man, Matthew Olaleye, who has been parading himself as a lawyer as he has been arrested while representing a client in a criminal trial at the Ojokoro Magistrate's Court in Lagos.

The fake legal practitioner's albatross came when the General Secretary of the Ikeja branch of Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Barrister Seyi Olawumi, made a report of Olaleye's nefarious activities and the police trailed him to the court premises where he was arrested.

According to the NBA Secretary, Olayeye’s appearance and manner of speech before the magistrate when he appeared as counsel in a matter attracted suspicion among the lawyers present at the court.
The lawyers then contacted the NBA which had since been trailing him till he was arrested.
