A Ghanaian man pretending to be a lawyer has been arrested after he used wrong legal language in court.

The suspect, Emmanuel Marfo, 23, appeared at the Koforidua Circuit Court, on Friday as a defence attorney in a civil dispute between Peter Amanor and Hanson Annoh, who alleged that Amanor failed to pay him, money he lent him.

According to Ebenezer Tetteh, Public Relations Officer for the Police in the Eastern Region, Judge Evelyn Asamoah, who presided over the case, became suspicious when Marfo (who was defending Amanor) used an incorrect legal language in court.

The judge proceeded to ask Marfo where he attended school. He replied that he went to the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration’s School of Law. He was then asked to furnish proof, but he could provide none.

Asamoah ordered for his arrest.

Initial police investigations revealed that Marfo never took nor passed the bar examination.
