Prince Ned Nwoko was born into the royal family of Nwoko in Idumuje Ugboko, in December 1960. He had primary and secondary school education in Nigeria before proceeding to the UK where he studied for a first degree in law and history from the University of Keele. He thereafter attended Kings College, university of London, where he obtained an LLM in maritime and commercial law. He was called to the English bar, at Lincoln's inn, before he joined the crown prosecution service as a prosecutor. He was later qualified as a solicitor of the supreme court of England and Wales. He worked with the two firms (Kumars Solicitors and Pascaldiers & co Solicitors), before setting up his own firm in London: Ned Nwoko & co solicitors.
The figure seven in the history of Idumuje Ugboko is quite outstanding in view of the seven streams, the seven kings, and the seven tombs, is worthy of note. History has it that the first seven kings of Idumuje Ugboko each lived for an average of 100 years plus, thus the history of the palace been over 700 years old. Meanwhile by the culture and tradition of the kingdom, a king must not be buried in the public nor in the open, thus the late king must be buried in a house specially built for that purpose.
