Vera Victoria Akonu, according to the report had her reservations about the lawyer and therefore dug deep into his education and that was when he was caught.

She found out that Kyei Baffour who claimed to have been called to the Bar in 2015 with his license number as EAR 21053/21 had lied because the Ghana Bar Association and the General Legal Council had denied knowledge of him.

The Magistrate Vera Victoria Akonu, therefore, ordered the arrest of Kyei Baffour who upon interrogation admitted that he was not a Lawyer but had some form of legal training in the United States of America.

He asserted that he passed the Law Entrance Examination in Ghana but he discontinued the Law Programme due to personal reasons.

Kyei Baffour has since been detained to assist the Police in its investigations and will be arraigned before the Circuit Court at Nkawie.
