Part of is post reads:
“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.
