Obehi practiced law in Nigeria before attending the University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law in Sacramento, California where he earned his Master of Laws Degree in 2012.

His research explored secession and federalism as alternative conflict management mechanisms in post-colonial Africa employing a comparison between Sudan and Nigeria.
Obehi is currently an SJD candidate at Georgetown University Law. At the heart of his doctoral research at Georgetown is the African Union's framework for democracy promotion and the dynamics of internal conflict in contemporary Africa. He is working under the supervision of Professor Rosa Brooks.
