Introduction
I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Medical Laboratory Science (Chemical Pathology) and Master's Degree in Chemical Pathology from the Rivers State University, Nkpolu, Rivers State, Nigeria. I went further to bag another Master's Degree in Forensic Science specializing in Forensic Toxicology and PhD in Toxicology from the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Anambra State, Nigeria and the Abia State University, Uturu, Abia State, Nigeria respectively. I have a lot of publications to my credit.
