“I’m 24, Not 20”, Esther Chukwuemeka Falsifies Age Reports

Nigerian latest lawyer Esther Chukwuemeka has debunked the reports that she is 20, and hence, the youngest to be called to the Nigerian Bar. It is the season of the graduation of Nigerian law students to the next level – being called to the bar, and one of them caught so much attention of the public.

An excited well-wisher put it out that the young woman is 20 years old, and the youngest to ever be called to bar in Nigeria. Many built on the story, giving reports that she had finished Secondary School at the age of 13/14 and was not given admission due to her age. As a result, the reports said, she went to India to study Law.Called To Bar: "I'm 24, Not 20", Esther Chukwuemeka Falsifies Age Reports

She further revealed that she couldn’t get admission immediately to study law but she eventually got when she was 16 but not to study law – she was given Political Science, contrary to the reports

Speaking further, Esther said while she was in year one in school, her Pastor suggested to her mum that she goes to India to study her choice of course and that was how she went to India and started 100 level at the age of 17. Upon her graduation, Esther came back to Nigeria for her Bar part 1. She added that she would have finished this in 2020 but for COVID-19, and went on to apologise for the wrong information, saying the well wisher was excited for her but the information given is incorrect.Called To Bar: "I'm 24, Not 20", Esther Chukwuemeka Falsifies Age Reports
