The First Information Report obtained by our correspondent said on November 28, 2016, at about the Nigeria Bar Assome individuals alleging that one Mr. I. T. David, who practised as a legal practitioner in the state was not an authentic lawyer

It added that Adogun was apprehended by the police while appearing as a legal practitioner before the Area Court 1, Ilorin, and was subsequently transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for a discreet investigation

The FIR said investigation conducted by the SCIID revealed the real name of the suspect as Peter Adogun and not Inufin Taiwo David, whom he impersonated..

The report further stated that photocopies of certificates of Inufin Taiwo David presented by the accused as his own were credentials the suspect allegedly deceitfully collected from a lawyer by the name who practised in Abuja.

He allegedly collected the documents on the pretext of assisting the original owner in securing employment in an oil company

The FIR said, “It was further revealed that Adogun practised and appeared in several matters in all levels of Nigerian courts up to the Supreme Court with the adopted name of ‘Bar I.T. David.’ The suspect has also prepared and signed several legal documents and court processes in the same adopted name.

The suspect was subsequently arraigned before a Magistrate’s Court in Ilorin. When the matter came up on Wednesday at the court presided over by Mrs. I.O. Olawoyin, a Principal Inspector of Prisons from the Mandella Maximum Prison, Ilorin, Mr. Samuel Bobinihi, said the accused was ill and had been taken to a hospital.
