Former ‘Level Up’ housemate, Beauty Tukura has continued to make headlines after her disqualification from the Big Brother Naija reality show.
Beauty Tukura who got into the Big Brother house with claims of being a lawyer is now being under investigation after she was denied by the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA).
The First Vice President of the Nigeria Bar Association, John Aikpokpo-Martins, has dismissed reports making rounds that Beauty is a lawyer.
He claims that the former beauty queen’s name did not come up in the Roll of Legal Practitioners in the Supreme Court and the Nigerian Bar Association.
His full statement reads:
“RE: BEAUTY TAKURA, LAWYER AND FORMER MISS NIGERIA DISQUALIFIED FROM BBNAIJA SEASON 7.
“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.
