Early life and education
Allwell Uwazuruike is one of four children of Ralph Uwazuruike, the founder of the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra. He studied law at Imo State University, Owerri, Nigeria, and was called to the Nigerian Bar in 2010. He went on to work as a Barrister at law in the law firm of Festus Keyamo SAN before moving to the UK for postgraduate studies in 2012. In 2017, he completed his PhD in Human Rights from the University of Central Lancashire taking up a lecturing position months later.
Allwell Uwazuruike co-founded Afritondo with his brother, Confidence Uwazuruike, in October 2018. In the years following its formation, the platform received hundreds of contributions from Africans on the continent and in the Diaspora. In 2019, the brothers launched the Afritondo Short Story Prize which attracted 421 submissions from 19 countries.  In March 2020, South African writer Jarred Thompson was declared the winner of the inaugural prize. 
Uwazuruike has published books and journal articles on human rights in Africa. He argues for the implementation of a regional approach to the implementation of human rights in Africa. He has also argued for the strengthening of the African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights through an unequivocal adoption of the Commission’s rulings as official decisions of the African Union Assembly. Outside of academia, he has also published a range of opinion articles on human rights abuses across Africa. 
Human Rights under the African Charter Published in 2020 by Palgrave Macmillan
In May 2020, Uwazuruike announced that he was giving monthly stipends to poor individuals and families struggling with the effects of the COVID-19 lockdown.
