‘She is not one of us’ – NBA disowns disqualified BBNaija housemate, Beauty Tukura
The Nigeria Bar Association has disowned the recently disqualified housemate of the seventh season of Big Brother Naija, Beauty Tukura.
In a statement released via the first vice president of the prestigious organisation, John Aikpokpo-Martins, via his Facebook page on Monday, August 8, 2022, stated 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.
“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 ongoing Big Brother Naija reality show “for throwing her wig and glasses at” a co-participant in the live show being watched by millions around the world after a party,” he wrote.
“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. John Aikpokpo-Martins, 1st Vice President, NBA. 8/8/2022.”
Beauty was disqualified from the reality TV show on Sunday evening over infringements of the rules of the house
