Theirs was the typical middle class family in the springtime of the civil service — one which enjoyed life’s basic necessities including education. Walter, alongside his other siblings, thus received education of appreciable standards up to university level.

After this, he received his high school education from Stella Maris College Port Harcourt, the prestigious County Grammar School Ikwerre/Etche, and Government Secondary School Ogu.

From this institution he obtained the Certificate in Theatre Arts (CTA) qualification as well as a bachelor’s degree in Theater Arts.
