Beatrice Nnamuoh
Nnamuoh is 35 years and had practised law for five years and won uncountable cases.
Beatrice Nnamuoh hails from Iyiawu village in Onitsha, Anambra State but she resides in Okporo, Orlu in Imo State.
Materials recovered from her included a lawyer’s gown, wig, collaret and letterhead, among others.

Meanwhile, Nnamuoh has made confession to the crime.

"I studied Sociology but I have worked with many lawyers. It was in the process that I learnt many things about law. Aside, I am very intelligent. I do everything that comes my way very well.

"I love the law profession. I sought admission four times but couldn't get in because of lack of money.
"To help myself, I decided to go into it illegally. I have been doing it and succeeding in many cases I handled better than real lawyers", She said.

Beatrice Nnamuoh who is a mother of a four-year-old baby said she regretted her actions and pleaded for mercy.

Addressing journalists on the arrest, the state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Chris Ezike, said the suspect was arrested at Orlu after defrauding unsuspecting members of the public of over N342,000.

He said,
"She defrauded unsuspecting members of the public with the pretence of selling auctioned vehicles to them, having posed as a lawyer.
"Nnamuoh also confessed to have forged the letterhead bearing Basil C. Okereke of Seat of Wisdom Chambers, No. 10 Orlu/Amakohia Road. A search conducted at her residence led to the recovery of the above exhibits".
