A 23-year-old man, Emmanuel Marfo, is in the grips of Koforidua Police for posing as a lawyer in a Koforidua circuit court.
Emmanuel Marfo dressed in a suite with bib and went to the Koforidua Circuit Court “A” as counsel for one Hanson Annoh in a civil case between Annoh and Peter Amanor.
Mr Marfo rose and introduced himself as counsel for Hanson only to start throwing wrong legal jargons in the courtroom.
Emmanuel’s language and conduct pricked the ears of the judge, H/W Evelyn Asamoah and other lawyers in court.
He was asked when he completed law school, his license, and other documents to prove he was a lawyer but he failed to provide any.
H/W Evelyn Asamoah immediately ordered for his arrest and further investigation.

Eastern regional police PRO DSP Ebenezer Tetteh who confirmed the issue said investigations reveal that Emmanuel is neither a lawyer nor has he been called to the bar.
One other person who came to stand in as surety to bail Emmanuel Marfo was also arrested and granted bail for also posing as a banker.
