Ifunanya Grant is unknown to us, she’s not our member – NBA Aba branch disowns ‘Baddest Lawyer’

The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Aba branch has denounced notorious young lawyer, Ifunanya Excel Grant Esq as one of its member.


Ifunanya, also known as ‘Baddest Lawyer’ on social media, became a viral topic when NBA National Leadership filed a professional misconduct Charges against her for her notorious images on social media.


The NBA branch said in a statement:


Our attention has been drawn to print and social media reports of publications of our Nigerian Bar Association ascribing membership of one Miss Ifunanya Excel Grant, wildly known as “the baddest lawyer” on social media, who is currently petitioned by the NBA to the Legal Practitioners Disciplinary Committee over complaints centred on her social media notoriety of posting pictures and videos of herself unclad and smoking marijuana, to Aba Branch of the NBA.


For the records, we wish to state categorically that Miss Ifunanya Excel Grant is not a member of the NBA, Aba Branch, and she is unknown to NBA, Aba Branch.


The misinformation by the NBA is therefore unacceptable to the members of Aba Branch and we request that the records be put straight by the NBA.


We do not believe that this wrongful ascription of the membership of Miss Ifunanya Grant to Aba Branch is deliberate and intended to portray Aba Branch in bad light and bring the membership to public opprobrium.


While we support every efforts of our great association, the NBA, to rid the legal profession of the few bad eggs, we must request that painstaking efforts must be taken by officers concerned to ensure that innocent and law-abiding practitioners are not unwittingly held out in bad light to the public.


Do accept the assurances of our esteemed regards.


Yours faithfully,


Innocent O. Egwu, Esq. — Chairman NBA, Aba Branch


Mazi K. C. Okoro — Secretary NBA, Aba Branch
