#BBNaija: Her name is not on the Roll of Lawyers – #NBA First Vice President disowns disqualified housemate, #Beauty Tukura as one of them(Read his statement)

The First Vice President of the Nigeria Bar Association, John Aikpokpo-Martins, has dismissed reports making rounds that Beauty Turkura, a disqualified housemate of the Big Brother reality show, season 7, is a lawyer.

He claimed 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.

This comes less than 48 hours after Beauty Tukura, a former housemate of the show and an acclaimed lawyer, was evicted from the popular reality show for fighting with a co-participant.

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.

“Thank you.”
