Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) has refuted reports that BBN’s disqualified housemate and former miss Nigeria, Beauty Tukura is a lawyer and a member of the Association.
The NBA said this in a statement on Monday, August 8, a day after Beauty was disqualified from the show for being violent.
The 1st Vice President, John Aikpokpo-Martin Esq stated thus;
“My attention and I guess of a large number of lawyers in Nigeria have been drawn to news reports that one Beauty Tukura, who is claimed and/or claims to be a lawyer participated and also got ignominiously disqualified from the on-going Big Brother Naija reality show “for throwing her wig and glasses at” a co-participant in the show after a party.
These reports have been very embarrassing to most members of the legal profession and may in all reasonable probability bring the profession into disrepute if found to be true. A quick check of the databases of the Roll of Legal Practitioners kept in the Supreme Court and the Nigerian Bar Association failed to reveal the name “Beauty Tukura” to be on the Supreme Court Roll or to be a member of the Nigerian Bar Association.
However, I hereby appeal to anyone who may be aware of her true name assuming we may have gotten her real name wrong to reach out to me.” he said
