23-year-old Emmanuel Marfo is in the firm grips of Police in the Eastern Region for allegedly posing as a Lawyer at the Koforidua Circuit Court A.
The suspect posed himself to the court as a member of the bench to represent a client in a civil suit before the court during a sitting.

Emmanuel Marfo was however handed over to the court officers after he admitted that he was a fake lawyer.
According to the Eastern Regional Police, Public Relations Officer who confirmed the arrest to Citi News, arrangements are underway to process him for court.
