The British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Richard Montgomery, recently extended his congratulations to Princess Owowoh for achieving a historic milestone at the United Kingdom’s Royal Military Academy Sandhurst (RMAS). In a statement shared on, Montgomery expressed his delight at meeting Owowoh, who was accompanied by an officer from the Nigerian Defence Academy, during their interaction.

Accompanied by Lt. Col Nyiam from the Nigerian Defence Academy, Montgomery shared his pleasure at meeting 2nd Lt. Princess Owowoh, the first Nigerian female officer cadet to graduate from RMASandhurst. He took to social media to share photos of their meeting, highlighting the significance of Owowoh’s achievement and emphasizing the importance of the Nigeria-British relationship.

Owowoh’s groundbreaking achievement came on April 12 when she graduated from RMAS as the first-ever Nigerian female officer. Her journey began in 2018 when she joined the Nigerian Defence Academy in Kaduna, where she initially served as a cadet lance corporal. Over the years, she demonstrated exceptional dedication and leadership, rising to the rank of cadet sergeant by her fourth year.

In her fifth year at the academy, Owowoh made history once again by being appointed company senior under Officer Charlie (CSUO C), becoming the first female to hold such a position. Her achievements were not limited to leadership roles; during her fourth year, she excelled academically, achieving first-class honors in biological sciences, further demonstrating her versatility and commitment to excellence.
