Mr. Yahya was at the Techiman Circuit court on February 5, 2020, dressed in Lawyers’ gown, wig and a bib in an attempt to represent three accused persons.
The judge, however, ordered for his arrest after detecting that he is a fraud.
Yahya begins his two-year sentence immediately but would reappear before the courts on May 27.
He is to face a second charge which is defrauding by false pretense, leveled against him by the suspected persons he wanted to represent. They are standing trial for robbery and kidnapping.
The charge is a second-degree felony and he faces up to 25 years imprisonment if found guilty.
