Justice Mary And Peter Odili’s Daughter Sworn in as Judge of the Federal High Court

Njideka Nwosu-Iheme, the daughter of former Rivers State Governor, Peter Odili and Justice Mary Odili, has been sworn in as a Judge of the Federal High Court.

She was among the 22 new judges sworn in by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Honourable Justice Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad on Tuesday 23rd November 2021.

A report shows that four of the newly-inaugurated judges are children of serving and retired judges in the country while one other is a sibling of a serving judge.

Nwosu-Iheme was rejected last year by Mr Buhari following a petition from judicial reform advocates.

She was appointed into the FCT Judiciary in March 2015 and was until recently a Magistrate at the Wuse Zone 6 Magistrate court.

She is married to Uzoma Nwosu Iheme, the son of the Court of Appeals Judge, Justice Chioma Nwosu Iheme.
