A fake lawyer, Tahir Ibn Muhammad(pictured right), has been sentenced to two years imprisonment in Kano State.
The police had filed charges against Muhammad accusing of posing as a lawyer over the last six years, and representing clients in court cases.
The lid on the impersonation by the suspect, Tahir Ibn Muhammad, was blown off by a lawyer, Barrister Abba Mahmud Salisu(both pictured) on March 13.
And on March 17, the fake lawyer was arraigned before a Magistrate court sitting at Malam Aminu Kano International Airport Kano for one-count charge of impersonation, an offence contrary to section 179 of the Penal Code Law.
Muhammad, who pleaded guilty to the charge during the hearing, and was represented by one Barrister Abass Rabi’u, was, however, sentenced to two years imprisonment without an option of fine by the Presiding Magistrate, Talatu Makama.
