According to the Prosecutor, Seargent John Iberedem, the accused had appeared in the court on April 5 to represent an accused.

“He announced his appearance for an accused and quoted a wrong section, which was what aroused the suspicion of other lawyers, including Mr. Adetayo Ladega.

“Ladega, the Vice-President of the Ikorodu Branch of the Nigerian Bar Association and other lawyers challenged Obu and he was interrogated and arrested by the police.

“The accused has been appearing as a lawyer for the past three years,” the prosecutor said.

Obu, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge against him.

The Chief Magistrate, Mrs. F. A. Azeez, granted him bail in the sum of N250, 000 with two sureties in like sum.
