Okoloko was born in Nigeria, and received law degrees at the University of Benin and the Seattle University School of Law, according to the governor’s office. He served as a law clerk for former Snohomish County Superior Court Judge Michael Downes, who retired this year.

Okoloko has prosecuted murders, sexual assaults, child abuse and elder abuse.

“Edirin has a clear dedication to the legal profession and a successful history of bringing justice to some of our state’s most vulnerable crime victims,” Inslee said in a prepared statement. “He will be an excellent addition to the bench in Snohomish County.”
