Ifunanya Delilah: NBA Speaks On Suspending Ifunanya Lawyer Over Nudity, Weed
Ifunanya Delilah, NBA has spoken on suspending Ifunanya Lawyer over nudity and weed.
Newsone reports that the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) has responded to reports that it suspended a young female lawyer Ifunanya Grant Excel popularly known as Ifunanya Delilah for posting photos of herself either naked or smoking marijuana on social media.
This online news platform recalls that news had emerged suggesting that Ifunaya, a young female lawyer admitted to the bar on July 28, 2021, was suspended by the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) for misconduct after a provocative social media viral post celebrating her call to the Nigerian Bar as Barrister and Solicitor of the Supreme Court.
In a statement sent to BarristerNG.com, Miss Ifunanya Excel Grant Esq denied making the “Gangster and Stoner” post and blamed online scammers who stole her pictures to create a “catfish account” to Scam people.
According to her, she is not on any social media platform and didn’t make the Viral Facebook post.
“I AM NOT A GANGSTER or a stoner or anything of such”, the statement reads in part.
Miss Grant stated that she is an Instagram Model and not a practicing Lawyer at the moment. She explained that her pictures with cigars was part of her current work as Instagram Model and Actress and the pictures are for modeling and acting purposes only.
SEE MISS GRANT’S FULL DISCLAIMER:
My name is Ifunanya Excel Grant. I came across the article written about me on the barristerng.com website and I will like to make an official DISCLAIMER.
First and foremost the Facebook account where the displayed pictures were gotten from is not run by me. That account is a catfish account.
I am an Instagram model and a lot of scammers steal pictures from my page and create fake accounts pretending to be me just to scam people.
I am not on Facebook or any other social media app. The statement “I Made it! I’m forever proud of myself! A BARRISTER & a STONER, sometimes a gangster. Celebrate with Me” was not written by me.
I AM NOT A GANGSTER or a stoner or anything of such. I was called to bar on the 28th of July, 2021. That was over a year ago.
The pictures of me smoking my Cuban cigar (which is the only thing I smoke) was not a picture to celebrate my call to bar. I am an actress and a model.
I do not practice law at the moment and those pictures are for modeling and acting purposes only.
I will not like anything to taint my career or tarnish my image.
But notwithstanding her disclaimer, a look at the Instagram page of Miss Grant @Funaya_, shows that the message in the Viral post has a striking resemblance to the posts on her Instagram page where she post mostly sexually provocative and Sultry Videos and Pictures usually associated with Models.
