Ifeyinwa said the groom told people he suddenly realised that he wouldn't be able to cope with her condition when they tie the knot, hence his reason for not showing.

She didn't study law at first

The senior magistrate opened up on her law journey stating that she had actually studied sociology first at the university she attended before immediately doing law upon graduation.

That decision meant she had to put her youth service on hold till the completion of her law program.

According to her, this stemmed from a childhood desire to be a lawyer in order to serve as a voice to the voiceless as well as assist physically challenged folks in need of help.
