Coolest assignment in any class

A Criminal Law case in which I had to recommend charges against a hypothetical father who negligently administered the wrong medication to his 3-year-old daughter. What appeared to be a clear-cut case of manslaughter turned out to be more complex, and my analysis led me to a different set of charges.

Career interests

Providing free legal services to innocent victims at risk of wrongful arrest or unlawfully detained in Nigerian prisons.

Issues that spark your passion

Criminal justice corruption and reform in Nigeria. I am a Catholic priest from Nigeria, and I entered law after visiting prisons during seminary. Many of our youth are imprisoned simply because they are poor; they are sometimes kept in detention for years “awaiting trial.”
