Felix Ogbaudu obtained his LL.B from the University of Lagos in 1992 and was called to the bar the following year. Prior to becoming a lawyer, he had been in law enforcement as a police officer for 17 years, retiring in 2011 as an Assistant Inspector-General (AIG). Ogbaudu’s vast experience led to his nomination as a member of a committee set up by the Nigeria Institute of Legislative Studies, an arm of the National Assembly, to review the Police Act. Since retiring from the police, he has been in private legal practice and was a member of the team of four lawyers who successfully sued MTN Communications Ltd for the infringement of the copyright of Omenuwoma Okson Dovie, a musician and entertainer, to four of his songs used as call back ring tones. Ogbaudu’s special interest areas are criminal defence and prosecution, civil litigation, and alternative dispute resolution. He is also a consultant on security issues and government policy.
