The Imo State Police Command, on Saturday, paraded a mother of four, Beatrice Nnamuoh for practising law illegally.

SUNDAY PUNCH gathered that Nnamuoh, 35, had practised law for five years and won many cases.

Naija News understands that she hails from  Iyiawu village in Onitsha, Anambra State.

While Speaking to Journalism, she said “I studied Sociology but I have worked with many lawyers. It was in the process that I learnt many things about law. Aside, I am very intelligent. I do everything that comes my way very well.

“I love the law profession. I sought admission four times but couldn’t get in because of lack of money. To help myself, I decided to go into it illegally. I have been doing it and succeeding in many cases I handled better than real lawyers.”

The Imo State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Chris Ezike, said that the suspect was arrested  at Orlu after defrauding unsuspecting members of the public of over N342,000.

“She defrauded unsuspecting members of the public with the pretence of selling auctioned vehicles to them, having posed as a lawyer.” he said.
