A man who posed a lecturer to defraud candidates seeking for admission into higher institution has been arraigned.

The police in Lagos on Friday arraigned a 39-year-old fake lecturer, Obi, in an Ojo Magistrates’ Court in Lagos.


Obi is charged with three counts of false pretence, fraud and stealing.

The prosecutor, Insp. Simon Uche, told the court that the defendant committed the offence on November 1, 2019 in Lagos.

He alleged that the defendant presented himself as a lecturer from the University of Lagos to one Ikeduba.
