The Lagos Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has secured the conviction of Emmanuel Adekeye Adekola before Justice Sherifat Solebo of a Special Offences Court sitting in Ikeja, Lagos for offence bordering on impersonation.

Operatives of the EFCC had on January 11, 2022 arrested him when he came to the Lagos Command of the Commission posing as a lawyer to secure the bail of a suspected fraudster who was in the Commission’s custody.

Nemesis caught up with him, when investigators dug in further to verify the documents he tendered to secure the bail.

He had claimed to be the owner of “A.A. Emmanuel & Co. Chambers”, which he had been using to perpetrate fraud until his arrest.

Following conclusion of investigations, he was charged with an amended one count.

He chose not to waste the time of the Court as he pleaded “guilty” to the charge.
