Meet Nigerian Parents with 5 Daughters Who are All Lawyers… Here’s the Story Behind It (Photos)


This is one hell of a Nigerian family nobody wants to mess with. The Nigerian Christian Pilgrims Commission secretary and wife of 35 years, have been pictured with their 5 daughters who are all lawyers.

The five sisters of same Nigerian parent who graduated from Nigerian Law School this week are now lawyers.

One of the sisters wrote on her Instagram page, “We’re siblings, of the same man and woman; these are not costumes… we’re actually lawyers! All of us 5.”

The photographer, Jonah Ajigo of Brookmatrix Photography who took the inspiring family photos shared the story behind the family’s success.

“Tor & Berry (Dr. Tor Uja and his wife, Berry Uja) met about 35 years ago, and they decided to dedicate their lives to God… for a while it seemed like God was just minding his business and ignoring them.

“He gave them 5 children, 5 girls… and we all know Nigeria; they don’t think much of the girl child.

“Anyway, fast forward a few years and God decided to shut everyone up!!!!! Ladies and gents I’d like to introduce you to the first parents in Nigeria (I stand corrected) who have 5 KIDS, All GIRLS, All LAWYERS!!!”
