The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) said former Big Brother Naija Season 7, Beauty Tukura is not a member of the body of lawyers.
The first Vice President of the NBA, John Aikpokpo-Martins, issued a statement on Monday.
The official said the attention of the association and members was drawn to reports about the former Miss Nigeria.
Aikpokpo-Martins noted that the ex-housemate “got ignominiously disqualified from the on-going Big Brother Naija reality show ‘for throwing her wig and glasses at’ a co-participant”.
The VP said the linking of Beauty to the NBA was “embarrassing to most members of the legal profession and may bring the profession into disrepute if found to be true”.
Aikpokpo-Martins said a check of the databases of the Roll of Legal Practitioners kept in the Supreme Court and the NBA did not show Beauty Tukura as a member.
“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 added.
Beauty was on Sunday disqualified from the show after receiving three strikes in less than two weeks.
During her introduction, the former beauty queen told the public she was a lawyer.
